Slope has severe limitation

The new slope functionality is a nice idea but perhaps it's me but I do think there's a distinct limitation in it namely that it only seems to slope the pipe.

 

Imagine having a pipe in the horizontal plane which turns and you want it sloped. In general you then start out by turning the elbow so that the exit of the elbow dictates the slope of the pipe that is attached to it. But this doesn't seem to be possible because the 'slope' point has to be a point on the actual pipe and not a fitting, in other words you can select the corner point of an elbow. This makes sense when you want a pipe sloping after it comes from the vertical plane but not in the case as I depicted.

 

Am I wrong? If so, please let me know what the solution is.
