Not unless there was benefit to maintaining redundant information (there might be, but if not it's easier to not have to synchronize it.)  

I try to this of WordPress' features as a toolkit, usually using them as typically used because they fit broad use-cases, but deviating for specialized use-cases. The good news is WordPress provides most of the basic tools you'll ever need. Plugin and core developers just keep building it ever higher.

I'm confused.  Wasn't the drop-down for within a metabox in a post edit screen?
