Flow multiplier in Materials?

This might be a newbie question, but why aren't ALL the setting from the materials tab/section in normal "print setting" found in the print setting under manage material???


I'd think at least the main "Flow" (multiplier) should be there. But also the initial temp's, so you can select a material and a print profile and be good to go. And not have to go chase the "orange values" for stuff that wasn't updated.
