Option to disable the Global Refinements on Refine Edge brushed area in Select and Mask

CONTEXT:

Global Refinements (inside Select and Mask feature) are really great for hard edge object (with or without feather) but can't be used with the Refine Edge Brush because it's Global!

So, for that reason I have to call 2 times the Select and Mask feature to make a clean extraction of a subject containing hard and soft edge:
  1. One time to select the subject and adjust the hard edge areas, then Output to Selection, + OK to exit the Select and Mask feature with my hard edge selection accurate.
  2. Second time, leaving all slider of Global Refinements at 0, and then using Refine Brush Brush to paint details detection Areas... + Decontaminate Colors...

REQUEST:

Add an option to Disable Global Refinements in the Areas where the Refine Edge Brush tool is used.
