Make "Quick Definition Lookup" work for variables?

I think it would be nice if Ctrl-Shift-I on a variable (or expression) would
automatically show the definition of the type.
E.g. with "Point position", when the action is invoked somewhere in the code
on "position" it should show the implementation of "Point".

What do you think?

P.S.
Why is it "Quick DEFINITION Lookup"? Wasn't it "IMPLEMENTATION" before? I think the
latter is much clearer, and it makes it easier to memorize the shortcut.

The point is that it now works for images as well:
what is the implementation of image then?:)

Ok, "Implementation" sound somewhat wrong for images.
However "Definition" is so generic, that it is completely unclear what the purpose is.

How about simply "Source Popup"? IMHO it would make the meaning clear and with a little
good will it applies to images also.

Really? I would say source for images is a bitstream...
Probably other suggestions?
