PHOTOSHOP - Merge History States

It would be great if we could merge 'history states'. For example, when I use Quick Selection Tool, many history states are created, like for 10-15, which eats more than half number of allowable history states (We could increase history states but seeing the same tool for about 10-15 times in the history, it's irritating no?) If I could merge those Quick Selection Tool it'd save a lot of space in the Cache wouldn't it?

An interesting observation, on this subject, is that "Nudge" doesn't create multiple history states.
Select a layer, nudge as many times as needed to get it position as desired, and Photoshop only adds one history state.

Nudge is the only one I can think of. It's usually a good thing that PS does this, though rarely I do prefer to have a history state per nudge. Very rarely.

Seems like the ability to select multiple history states and merge could be a confusing feature.

Perhaps a toggle that disables all tools from creating multiple states (just like with "Nudge"), instead.
