Why sketcht-etch and not just etch?

Is there a (good) reason why we can't just draw our sketch in the etch function, just like any other profile?

Why do we first start a sketch, close, etch?

I hate this to. It appears that etch is not being treated as a true "feature". It seems like it is some special type of curve. This means it doesn't show up in Assemblies by default, you can't use it in family of parts.
I suggest opening a PR about this with support. If enough people request a change they might do something. We opened one for FOP.
