Photoshop: Pick colors inside color-picker dialog menu straight from shared library colors

I really love the new CC Library feature, especially sharing colors between the CC apps. But it is not possible when you want to change the color of a shape layer or a font to pick the color straight from the shared Library. Now you have to move your color-picker out of the document on the Library or first add the color to your Swatches.
So my idea is: When you want to pick a color from the color-picker dialog menu, please add the feature to also select the color directly from the shared Library colors.

Yes, it breaks my workflow too. So I did hack for Windows which can solve. From reaction of David, it seemed that they would have to make some change in architecture and I do not want to wait several years :-) (I reported this bug one year ago.)

I agree, picking the color from the library should be possible. I have been fighting with this for some time.
