Options to start entries copied from a source workflow to start other target workflows.

We have a use case at a customer's where about hundred entries get copied to a parallel folder via workflow. The Source folder uses an entry definition and a workflow, the destination folder uses a different entry definition and a different workflow.
The copy entry option in the workflow designer allows you to choose wheter to start the same workflow anew, from the current state or to not start it at all.

So, what we do is, we change the entry type for all these entries via "Configure Views, Urls and Controls". Afterwards, for all entries, we have to manually stop the old workflow and start the new workflow.

I would like to propose two enhancements here:
1. How about an option to set "Start destination workflow" at the Copy Entry Option.
2. How about a checkbox option at the Change entry type dialog within "Configure Views, Urls and Controls" that let's you start the corresponding workflow assigned to the destination entry type automatically.

Thank you.
