Paste as Smart Object

Simply put, there are often so many times when I copy a graphic from another place. Whether that's a website, our online asset library, a presentation file where I don't have access to a source graphic, etc, etc, etc...

I find that Smart Objects are really a cornerstone of our workflow these days. It's the best non-destructive way to work. But, I find myself constantly pasting things in, and then right clicking and converting to Smart Object. Is it a big deal, no. But, it's a constant thing I do. When I'm building composites, etc. 

So I'd love for there to be a setting (similar to open objects from RAW or dragging in makes a Smart Object) where I can either A) When Pasting choose somehow to paste as a smart object (possibly assigning my own quick key for it and sacrificing one of the other paste specials or B) Make it a preference setting so that when I paste something it automatically pastes it as a Smart Object. That way if I don't want it to be I can rasterize it after the fact.
