Suggestion: New decline interview option "Unrealistic budget" or "Budget too low"

When declining an invitation to interview, you have the options:
Inadequate client history on oDesk
Not interested in job posting
Too busy on other projects
Other (enter custom reason)
My actual reason for declining is pretty much always that the budget is too low. I tend to go with "not interested" or "other" and then specify why, but it would be useful to just click on "budget too low" or similar.
It might also help (though I won't hold my breath) certain clients to get the message that asking contractors with decent hourly rates to write 500 words for $2.50 is not going to happen for precisely that reason.
