Annoying behavior when creating new port in structure diagram

Annoying behavior when creating new port in structure diagram:

•Place a capsule on a structure diagram.
•Drag a connector from one of that capsule's ports to an empty spot in the structure diagram.
•RSARTE now asks what it should create:



•Select "Create Assembly Connector To New Element: Port"
•Now the toolset asks for the protocol to use for that port:


Why do I have to select this?
I obviously want a port with the same protocol as the port I've just drawn a connector from.
Also, listing multiple standard (and incompatible!) protocols makes little sense.
