Allow Illustrator artwork with colors set to overprint to retain that behavior when pasted into Photoshop

I routinely create product renderings in Photoshop by pasting label artwork into Photoshop that was created using Illustrator. Many times the designers will have set colors to overprint (rather than Multiply or Darken) and those overprints won't show when the artwork is pasted into Photoshop. The process of opening the artwork in Illustrator, finding and selecting everything that is set to overprint and setting it to multiply, is excruciating. 

I don't have control over how designers and production artists set up these files, and to be fair, setting a color to overprint is technically accurate.

Seems like it would be an easy feature for Adobe to add.
