focus on Category instead of Description for imported records?

I have been trying to figure out why the focus in the register goes to the Description field.

I download and import my records from my bank. I go the register for that account to reconcile my records and to assign categories to the items that MD hasn't recognized. Since the records come from the bank, there is no reason to expect that I will want to change the contents of the Description field. What I do often want to change is the Category field. It is a minor but persistent annoyance that I need to tab from the Description field to the Category field before I can correct the category assignment as I work my way through the register.

If I were manually entering a new transaction it would make sense for the focus to go to the Description field, but for imported records it makes no sense to me. Am I alone in this opinion?
