Lightroom: Books module needs the ability to automatically create a Virtual copy when you add images to its collection set

I spent a few hours collating some images in the book module and arranging them in templates. I then saved the book. LR sensibly gave me the option to create virtual copies of the images as the processing and even the profile is likely to be different from what I use normally. However, I then added a bunch more photos and forgot to create virtual copies of each one as I imported. Now I am left with a mess of images some virtual and some not.

As the create virtual copies option appeared when I saved the book I looked for the option to save the book again, it’s not there. As the book is really a collection I guess I can just select all and create virtual copies but then I have to go through every image and swap the original for the virtual copy in the book – OMG! 

It would seem much more sensible to offer a way to automatically create a VC when you add an image to the book's collection, or to allow you to re-save the book and offer the ability to create VCs for those images where the original has been used.
