Photoshop: I'd like to be able to double click a text area in Photoshop to edit text like Illustrator

Dear Adobe Gripe #4453

"How come I can't double click a text area in Photoshop to get inside the box to edit it as in Illustrator? (I know you shouldn't do type in Photoshop but sometimes it is required.)"

In Photoshop, the shortcuts are to hit T to select the text tool and click on the text area to edit. You can also double-click on the Text Layer thumbnail in the Layer's panel to enter text editing mode:

The current way is good, too but it would be better as in the idea because we don't need double-click anything else.

This is not working for me. I have a photo that Already has text on it and I need to change that text. When I hit the T and then double click it wont allow me to edit the text that is already there, which is what I need to do.

If the text is baked into the image, i.e. if it's a flat image without text layers, you'd can't simply change the text because there is an infinite number of variables which cannot be determined from such a low amount of data such as flat image.
