PHOTOSHOP: don't understand color samplers, want them to do more

I first posted this as a community question that can be found at the link above.

So while I am very happy with the improvements and feature enhancements of the latest release I've found myself to be a bit frustrated with the color sample toolset.

First the names are antiquated and juvenile. For the price tag and skill quotient of what Photoshop has become I think it's time to do away with terms like "Eye Dropper" and call it a Color Sample. In doing so it would follow that renaming the current "Color Sample" (which it isn't really) something to the effect of a Color Pointer would be mindful.

While your at it can you maintain the variable content feature of the Color Pointer when it's used in an Action. This way it can sample and set the foreground color to different values in different canvases. I did a quick online search and found a script that will help in this goal. But what would be preferred is if something to the same effect of that script were embedded into the new Color Pointer tool and activated when it's found in an Action.

If there is in fact a way to accomplish this outcome with the current version and it's standard features I'd really like to learn how to do it and would appreciate any assistance.
