This change is made because of the feedback from editors who have to create pages and FCEs daily with different templates. So its usability is proved by a real life use case.

In the past 7 months I invested a lot of my time to study usability (almost every day). In this particular case I follow Robert Hoekman. He advices to ask less, especially if answer can be obtained without user's additional actions. I am confident in what I did in this case. I remove the necessity to select DS because this information already exists in TO. There is no need to ask user to make the choice twice.

It was a simple bug. I fixed it yesterday.
