proposal: smart identifier rename after a class rename refactoring

I have submitted

http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=10242

would you find it useful ?

Title: After a rename class, a smart rename long reference names
should be offered

Very often I have instance variables, arguments, locals and accessors
names modelled after a class name.
For example:
...
private ExtendedBarAction extendedBarAction = null;
...

very often if I rename the class, I'd love to have the names of such
references to be changed as well, eg.

...
private ExtendedFooActor extendedFooActor = null;
...
