It would be nice to be able to create a simple spatial join without having to make a new output feature class.  Many times I find myself needing to populate an attribute from one feature class into another feature class based on location.  It'd be great if I could make a spatial join similar to the normal table-table join, and then simply "remove join".  Because there are times when a new output is desired, maybe a radio button to choose between "New Output" or "In-Process".
