Comment(by Alhadis):

 Agreed - but I think this entire area of WordPress's source code needs
 serious development. There's very little room for enhancement in the Media
 Uploader's API - the best that I've done by way of customising the
 uploader has been accomplished with JavaScript. It'd be good if there were
 filters and actions for this: Your issue could, for example, be
 circumvented by declaring a filter for the function that generates the
 dropdown markup. Then all you'd do is replace the output with something
 simpler - say, the image thumbnail and "Use as featured post" instead of
 the whole shebang.

 The way it is now, you'd need to capture and flush the output buffer to
 implement that.
