Sync to android device does not copy the Album Artist

Ok, I know - most of my mp3 files do NOT contain an album artist entry in their id3 tags. Winamp shows them with the artist in the album artist column as a view only option.
I also understand the desire to copy the files to the device straight away, without the need to edit them one by one to add the missing field, just before the transfer.
But why can't winamp for android just work the same way as the desktop version, and use the artist as the album artist, when none is available? And the same thing happens when I view the files on my android device, using the desktop media library - suddenly all the songs don't have album artist at all - why not just use the artist field as a substitute?

Thanks for the great product, I really enjoy the sync option.
