Lightroom: Ability to Duplicate/Invert Adjustment Brush Masks

It would be helpful to duplicate the mask from an adjustment brush pin to use for other purposes, even better if could invert as well. Use example: darking the background of an image above a horizon line, but where a person is in front. A mask would be created by painting around the person. If a separate adjustment to just the person was required rather than paint a new mask could duplicate and invert the one from the previous pin and start from there.

Note that you can actually move local brush adjustments, starting with Camera Raw 8.2. Just click on a pin and drag to move it. (You'll need to have the brush tool selected, and make sure that Show Pins is checked.)

(Note: This thread appears in both the ACR and Lr forums, so I need to clarify this ability is only available in ACR at the moment.)
