Can't Set Up a Watch Folder that Encodes to .WMV "Same As Source"???

So I get a lot of requests from people to take a video and make it compatible with PowerPoint, and the best way to do that is convert to the old .wmv format.  So I thought I'd be clever and set up a watch folder that takes whatever I give it, and convert to a "Same as Source" .wmv.  That way the dimensions and bitrate would all be the same, but would convert to a usable format.

I try to do this, and in the "Preset" drop-down, there is no "Same as Source".  Very weird. 

I'm trying my best to figure out why this would be omitted. Am I missing something?  To leave this out of Media Encoder would be maybe one of the dumbest omissions in all of Adobe's history (which is full of dumb omissions), so I'm hoping that I am simply not finding the right checkbox somewhere. There's no way this is not an option, right?
