View normal to a plane in a drawing?

So I have a plane in my model that I want a view "normal to"...

BUT auxiliary views work off of lines, not planes, which gives me an undesired view.

Then I tried making a "New View" in the model, "normal to" the desired plane.

This worked, but it is a static view. If the plane changes the view DOES NOT.

So... how can I make this view in the drawing or in the model, so that the view is always normal to a specific plane?

 

Extra fun:

Depending on my workflow, when the plane is just on a 45° from the Front Plane, things work okay, BUT if I make changes I get this message in the drawing:

"The orientation of this drawing view has been changed. All existing dimensions will be deleted"

WHAT!!? NO!!! Well it is only two or three dimensions in the view I need... but really? *sigh*

 

Extra Credit:

Does anyone know how to delete a view once added?
