USB formatting labels

I am unsure whether this is an issue related to Nautilus or Ubuntu
itself, but when I format a USB stick with the right-click option, it
doesn't enter the USB's current label as the new formatted label. It's
only a minor annoyance but an annoyance at that. I reckon it should
detect the current label of the stick and relabel a newly formatted
USB stick with the same label, unless otherwise changed by the user.
Surely this can't be hard to implmement into Ubuntu (or Nautilus)?
