Save the results of symbol classification as a feature attribute

Idea created by OSGISAdmin on Sep 10, 2014
    When classifying data using the Symbology Tab / Classification under Layer Properties it is easy to perform a variety of classifications (e.g. natural breaks, equal interval, etc.).  It would be great if the results of a classification could then be saved as an attribute in the feature attribute table.  Add a button to the classification pop-up that would save something like the following:
    1.           Attribute the classification is based on
    2.           Classification method
    3.           Number of classes
    4.           Break points
    5.           Class rank for each feature
    As an alternative, perhaps all the classification parameters could be stored in a file associated with the feature dataset (something similar to a prj file) and just the class rank could be stored in the feature attribute table.
