Photoshop: Use Seamless Tones and Colors for the new CS6 Content Aware Move Tool

The Content Aware Move Tool in the Beta version of CS6 works pretty doggone well, except that differences in brightness or tones in the selection's new position frequently fail to match. For instance, moving a bird from near the top of the frame, where the sky is lighter blue, to nearer the horizon in the middle of the frame, where the sky is deeper blue, reveals a huge difference in the sky color. In the past, I would put the selection on a new layer, clone out the bird's original location, then use the Auto Blend Layers>stack images>seamless tones and colors to match things up.

Is there any way of integrating that "seamless tones and colors" into the new move tool? Or, barring that, have some way of selecting "move to new layer" when using the Content Aware Move Tool, so that after the move, one could merge the layers using the Auto Blend function?

Thanks in advance,

It should be using an algorithm to match the shades and tones to blend the content.
