Addition of supplemental info (applicable geographic area) in options for Geographic Transformation

It would be appreciated if the transformation table (for re-projection) has more concise info in order to  differentiate the different options between systems.

Say there are 6 options  to project a map from,  say "ProjectionSystem1-Datum1" to "ProjectionSystem2-Datum2".
I recommend that the name of  geographic area/s where a specific option is applicable to  is indicated in the option itself. Besides, since the option does not specify the applicable geographic area, you wont even know if the option is applicable to your project area.

I suggest adding a hyperlink or a button beside the listbox for transformation, to invoke a documentation or help file that a user can review before selecting an option. Obviously, selecting an incorrect/inaprropriate transformation generates an incorrect image or map .
