Persistent indicator (or checkbox) for Generate Assets

First off I just want to say that I am a HUGE fan of Generate Assets. It has completely transformed how we generate game assets and maintain pipelines! IMHO, it is in the top two Photoshop features of the last 20 years (just behind Smart Objects) . 

One feature that would be an extremely helpful addition to GA would be a persistent checkbox on the top UI bar that would toggle the Generate > Image Assets setting off/on. Also helpful would be to always set a document's GA setting Off when opening a document. 

I would think most users only want to export assets at a certain time. At other points -- such as if I'm just looking at a file or repurposing elements from an old document -- I don't want to overwrite assets that have already been propogated downstream. This can cause a lot of needless changed-item flags coming up in other parts of our pipeline (like TexturePacker, BeyondCompare, PerForce). Having an persistent visual indicator of GA status-- and being able to change it with a single click -- would be a big time saver.
