Label and Symbology Synchronisation

In ArcGIS you can select a field to symbolise your layer by but it automatically assumes that this is the same field to use as the labels in the legend. On the labels tab you can select a field to label your features by.

Can I customise my ArcGIS so the Symbology tab labels are always based on the field selection on the labels tab?

Mapping Center Answer:

Unfortunately you cannot do this (except in the very rare case that you are labeling the same field that your are symbolizing).
