Use Feature creation sketch for annotation plane dimensions

The continued growth of ASME Y14.41, Digital Product Definition Practices, in the CAD community and throughout commercial and defense arena needs to be further integrated in Creo.

PTC has been aggressively moving forward with adoption to ASME Y14.41, and the inclusion of annotation planes into the product is exciting and welcome. The overall move toward using digital 3-D CAD data, rather than traditional 2-D drawing, provides great efficiencies and overall quality.

Where even greater efficiencies can be obtained is to have the sketch plane during feature creation, be done in the annotation plane. Currently, the annotation plane is a virtual drawing surface. Thus basically moving the effort of drawing creation into the annotation plane, which in effect does not lower the time to create the product. Merely, it is a transfer of effort from one space, 2-D to 3-D.

Seems as though the sketch plane and annotation plane can be one in the same. One could argue, how would sketches created in different order (time) be overlaid so that dimensions are clear and concise. This seems to me to be the crux of the issue, but PTC can you please place efforts here to accomplish this enhancement.
