A wish for --- Text Formatting in Property Expressions

I think text formatting options should be available in property expressions.
For Example:

CONCAT ( {Property:INT-SYS | Equipment/CatTag}, "-", {Property:INT-SYS | Equipment/TypeTag}, ".", {Property:General Parameters/Element ID} )

Here three properties are concatenated together.

It looks like this in a label:

      EQ-01.94
I would like it to look like this:

      EQ-01.94

if we had basic text formatting rules available in the expressions I could do this.

 

.... and yes I know how to hack this by assembling this all in a label instead of using an expression. Using expressions saves time in the long run because changing the expression changes hundreds of labels and I can use the result of the expression in a schedule!! I can't hack that together in a schedule.
