Allow random points from joined field

It would be wonderful if one could select a joined column from the input field selector for the Random Points vector research tool, so that it was not necessary to export many nearly identical copies of a layer for reloading. (Similarly, if the random points were optionally generated on the fly, rather than requiring an export that would be awesome)

This should probably be a more generalized request for joined columns to be treated as first-class data. I have noticed that many processes (generating buffers, etc.) require the seemingly unnecessary steps of exporting layers with joined columns to clutter one's workspace.
