copy running-config tftp: destination filename


In IOS-Xr when i do a copy run tftp: the system sets the destination filename as you can see below to "running-config"

 RP/0/0/CPU0:router_4#copy running-config tftp:
 Wed May 7 12:52:37.457 UTC
 Host name or IP address (control-c to abort): []?
 Destination file name (control-c to abort): [running-config]

In IOS the behavior is to set the destination filename to hostname-confg

cpe_1#copy running-config tftp:
Address or name of remote host []?
Destination filename [cpe_1-confg]?

Is there an easy way to get the IOS-XR box to behave in the same way as the IOS box? When i run copy run tftp: i want the destination filename to be set to hostname-confg.
