Why not let us have only one color/opacity stop in the Gradient Editor?

I constantly find myself wishing that I could remove the second stop from a gradient.

This would allow quicker single-color alpha gradients and can generally improve workflow speed when working with multiple layers with same gradients that require different color values.

This is implemented in Photoshop CC 2014.

Be warned though, single stop gradients can't be read by previous versions of Photoshop.
