I believe that's how the field is intended to be used, but Bazaar
currently does it the way Daniel described. There was some
discussion at the last sprint about this, and I would favour
switching. One of the things that was standing in the way was
that it would be quite a lot of effort for the release manager
to do this. I volunteered to write a script to automate this, but
I haven't done so, my apologies.

What else would be stopping us from switching? Would having
that script be enough?
