Automatically normal to sketch

Would be nice if the view automatically looked normal to a sketch when it's created or edited. Saves an extra key press (N) every time.

    It might be nice if this was an option (like in some other CAD systems), but there are many times when it's helpful to sketch in a 3D view. If the orthogonal 2D view was the default, or worse, was the only choice, it would drive many users crazy. Leaving things in 3D often makes it easier to pick references, or see things in relation to one another in a way that a 2D view doesn't do.
