Lightroom: Options to: Make a copy

I wish to get other options when: 
Select one/multi photos and right click - make a copy -
a small window open
make a copy
 select FORMAT: dng or jpg or tiff 
 select SIZE:  small / full / custom

The reason is that I often import as raw format for best editing, but wish to keep the photo as jpg (lighter and  reduced) and delete the original.
The jpg would be automatically save at the same place than the original

Now to do that I have to export to folder and then reimport the pic...

Personally, I don’t ever delete my raw DNG files. The processing engines keep getting better with time and I can re-process older files with much improved results.

I agree with John there, the Raws/DNGs are my negatives, and I also look to re-processing later on as software is developed.

I'd also like to see PNG addd to that list too, it's becoming a more popular format, good for the web, smaller than TIFF, and can handle 16-bit lossless compression too.
