Photoshop: Vanishing Point Pattern Fill

I've been tasked with creating a photo composite of a revised road layout and have been exploring ways to achieve this using Photoshop. It's my first time using the Vanishing Point feature and have created and defined pavement pattern I'd like to use but it seems I have to first fill a new layer with that pattern and then copy and paste it into the Vanishing Point Interface Window to get it into the relevant perspective plane. I think it would be really useful to have a Pattern Brush & Fill Bucket available directly within the VP UI so that you could work on multiple areas using a variety of patterns in one go to speed up this workflow.

While looking to see it this has previously been suggested I noted that other suggestions have noted the lack of pattern fill rotation and so would request that a setting for Rotate Pattern be included in the toolbar of this new feature whenever the tool was selected. I would also request that a Pattern Scale option also be included here as well (similar to the way patterns are invoked using Layer Blending Options in the Pattern Overlay style

It seems like most of the underlying architecture is there in the Photoshop already so hopefully it wouldn't take too much to adopt this suggestion. If you do look to improve the functionality of the Vanishing Point feature, could I also make one other minor suggestion. I find it frustrating that when in the middle of drawing out a Perspective Grid that if I choose to cancel out of doing so and hitting the Escape key, it quits out of the VP UI back to the Photoshop window. This seems counter-intuitive to me and should first cancel the tool then the interface.
