Drag feature layer into Projection field in tools to import projection

    I would like to be able to drag a feature layer that has the projection I want to use into a tool dialog projection field. Currently, if I want to import a projection from a feature layer I have to open the projection selector, select import, and browse to that layer.

    I would like to just be able to drag a layer into the projection field and have it's projection harvested (like you can for specifying the input feature layer in a tool), instead of current multi-step process. If I attempt to do this, the cursor changes to a circle with slash to indicate it is not a valid input type.
