Lightroom: sync facial recognition with Facebook?

A lot of my photographs are taken on cruises/vacations/etc. with friends and family. I spend a good bit of time in Lightroom tagging people (and LOVE the facial recognition feature!). After culling and editing, several photos are published to Facebook. FB also does a pretty good job with recognition, but I invariably wind up spending time tagging people there, which I've already tagged in LR. It would speed up the process if there was a way to "handshake" with FB when publishing from LR. Might require a verification procedure, such as the following:
LR: "Doe James" and FB: "Jimmy Doe" --- is this the same person?
Perhaps this idea should also be raised with the FB team, as I'm sure a lot of coordination would be required. Just sort of thinking out loud here. :-)

I agree and was about to post a similar idea.  Even if Lightroom just had a place that I could add a note to the tag where it links to that person's Facebook account, it would help.
