SharePoint 2010: Choice column not supported in lookup

One of the issue or we can say a bug that i found in new SharePoint 2010 version and it is confirmed from Microsoft team.

Issue is like this,

If you try to create a lookup column and select list from which you are setting lookup column, you will not get choice field columns in primary as well as secondary fields. For testing purpose take Task list and check the fields in dropdown as well as checkbox

Title (linked to item)
% Complete
Start Date
Due Date

You never get Priority and Status columns

On one of the Microsoft blog, i found a post where they say it is supporting but it's not true, Here below it is

Create list relationships by using lookup and unique columns

get confirmation from this post

Restrictions on additional columns available for addition with Lookup column?

Hope in upcoming hotfix this bug will be solved...!
