Photoshop: Channel as Mask

the information in the channels is very often essential for some adjustments.
taking the information from one channel, tweaking it with levels or curves and you get the perfect mask for highlights or shadows, or even color specific tasks.

why not having the option in the mask properties panel (cs6). choose a channel as mask directly from there. also to switch between "all layers" and "Current layer"

of course there should be a way to tweak the "channel as mask" with curves or levels.

please! this would be a very powerful tool.
