Handling default picklist values in rules

It would be a huge help to have rules engine try and auto map picklist values when mapping from one to another in the action. My use case is mapping a standard country field from the account, to a new field in a custom object. The values are the exact same but it defaults to the first one alphabetically. With 200 or so countries, and having to do this for three different actions, its going to take a long time!

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for the input, we have already noted this issue and included automating as part of winter  release. 

The auto mapping currently included in value mapping and works if both the labels are exact matching.

Can something similar be done with Multi-Picklist values?
