Option to fillet corners when sketching a rectangle?

It seems like lately I've been drawing a lot of sheet metal face plates that have filleted corners.

I usually start with the Rectangle command. After I size it, I then have to add the fillets.

What do you think about adding an option in the feature manager to fillet the corners when creating the rectangle?

I suppose you could go one step further and have the option to make the fillets all equal or not.

I know I could add a generic shape to my design library, but I was just wondering what the general opinion would be.

Also, when making a cut, there are times when I've used the midpoint of the sides to constrain the location.

When you start the fillets, you get the warning about the midpoint constraint.

If the fillets are already there, you wouldn't get the warning.
