Does anybody agree with me that a "perspective to camera" feature would be awesome?

What I mean is that when I'm animating, I'll often do stuff like:

1) Look at a preview of an animation and decide somethings not right
2) Press "4" to switch to perspective and then move or rotate the offending object
3) Notice a cool "would-be camera angle" while still in perspective view.
4) Dream of a day when i can just press Ctrl-6 (or something) to convert the perspective view into a Camera Keyframe
5) Press "6", closely followed by "shift-C" and adjust the camera movement.

Please let me in on the secret if there's already a way of doing this!

cheers
Pete

do you mean that when you're already in perspective view, and you want your camera to reflect that view? if so, then yeah.
