Just a short remark to support this change:

I strongly agree that removing the DS selector is an important usability 
enhancement for editors. During editor training I always have to teach 
them to switch one selector (DS), accept the alert message, then switch 
the second selector (TO). This is not only annoying but results in the 
overall impression of an uncomfortable system and I have problems 
reasoning why this step is necessary.

Anyway, I am grateful for this change!

Cheers, Jörg.
