Export Surface Boundary to Polyline

It would be nice to be able to get a polyline of the boundary of a surface without having to explode my surface. It should work similar to the export menu in corridors.

What I found that works is to CopyByBasePoint the CorridorSurface to a new Drawing (preferably with only one layer) and explode the surface twice. Now you have the boundary line as a polyline...  Edit it as needed.

Click on the surface.
Look at the contextual ribbon > Export Objects from surface > Choose the border.
The ribbon didn't exist in 2006. This command may have. I know it was there in 2008.
