When closing a New Question as an Exact Duplicate as so...

This question covers exactly the same ground as earlier questions on this topic; its answers may be merged with another identical question. See the FAQ
To me it would make sense to include a link to the Earlier Accepted Question instead of leaving the new ask-er in limbo. adding the link would be helpful and in no way detrimental. I completely agree with thinning Duplicate questions but think making it Standard Procedure in including the Accepted Question link in the closed statement...
I humbly ask this here hoping this is the right forum and hoping this discussion leads to the addition i described.
I look forward to all answers and comments,thank you in advance.
the names listed in the copied closing statement i used is an actual one and i chose it because i have come to respect those listed, i hope this was ok : )
