Swap a graphic on a timeline with other one in the Media Bin while keeping the same effects and transitions

It would be very useful to be able to swap out a graphic on the timeline with another one in the Media bin without effecting any effects or transitions. At the moment the only option is to Update Media, which will then change all of the instances of that icon or graphic in the Media bin and on the time line. Sometimes the Customer will either change their mind or make a mistake in the required graphic, which, at the moment is a nightmare to update and change.
The idea would be to be able to right click on the icon in the timeline and choose an option called Swap image from the Media Bin and choose one to change and still keep the existing transition and effects, and positioning  applied.

Maybe you can do this even with video. I like the idea as you can set up a template for a video (an intro and outro with effects) and swap out the video in the middle. Would allow me to reproduce an updated video monthly for my team and just focus on the content. Good idea Darren.

Yes, this would be very handy! I often decide I need an alternate version of an image for a specific use and I don't want to replace that image everywhere. It would be great if I could import the new version and just swap it in place without having to copy settings and effects etc. and re-apply transitions.
