sketch on sphere without making new plane

One thing that bothers me about Solidworks is that we cannot simply click on a sphere or round cufrace, such as the side of a tube, and sketch or insert text without having to create a new plane and go through several more steps, especially for adding text.

Does anyone know of a simple way to add text to a round object by simply clicking on the rounded side and texting?

If not, I hope Solidworks will improve the software so that we can click on any object, no where or what shape, and be able to add text, sketch or do whatever. We can do this with flat parts, but as far as I know, not with rounded, or oddly shaped, ones.
