Moving Components to Library

Love the new update for moving a component to a library and maintaining the connections. I still find myself wishing it was simpler. I only have one file as a library for a project. There are occasions that I create a component in a non-library file. In order to move it I still have to publish as a library, cut, and then paste to the library to migrate it, and then I have to unpublish the library.

Is the reason we can’t have the symbol definition moved similar to colors and type styles because the component ID is different in a normal file vs a library file?

It would be much smoother being able to paste an instance from a non-library file and then have the option to migrate the master to the library.
