Why doesn't Adwords Help Us Generate Google Analytics Tags?

Here's a question. Why must I use external tools or my weary keystrokes to create Google Analytics tags in Adwords?

It would seem to be great for Google if they'd give us a checkmark that said

[x] Generate Google Analytics tags for this adgroup

Then we'd get more consistency in measurement, and could create better reporting within Google Analytics down to the keyword level if we wanted.

The keyword tags could be "tagged on" to the end of any custom URLs we already had in there so not to affect any other analytics software.

All of us have probably found out too late that we've screwed up a tag somewhere when creating an ad, requiring some creative, time-wasting reporting.

Thoughts? Downside I'm Missing?

Isn't this autotagging?
