Photoshop: Contact Sheet ll places only raster files, why not full res smart objects?

Photoshop: Is there a way to automate a Contact Sheet ll so that the placed images are smart objects rather than re-sized raster images?
Contact sheet ll is a great option for creating quick reference pages but is even greater when those references can be double clicked to digitally view full res when the source doc is sized for print.
If not this is definitely an idea for implementing.

If you feel so inclined you could customize »ContactSheetII.jsx« however you liked for your own use, I guess.
Naturally some JavaScript proficiency seems necessary for that. (Edit: And familiarity with the Photoshop DOM.)

What speaks against SOs in contact sheets would be the potentially enormously increased file size.
