If you are familiar with JavaScript it may be more convenient to employ a Scripting approach instead of waiting for a future implementation of such a feature.

Out of curiosity, should the script you posted Max work by default or must modifications have to be made ?

I think you would need to add functions for replacing names. I think that's only for searching and I didn't test it myself.
