I see your point of view, but.... There are millions of BB users worldwide, and many of us have something small on the BB that we would like to change.
If RIM coded all of these "wouldn't it be nice" into the OS, then the OS would be huge, slow and unwieldy.
The "majority" of people probably do not have lots of email addresses that they store with little intention of using. I actually do have some of these, so I have an address book on my PC that I do NOT synch to my BB with such data in it.
There are several "workarounds" you can try, as TBH I cannot see enough demand for RIM to code the feature you describe.
