Add droplet selection to the DNS panel

When adding an A/AAAA record to a domain which is already set up to use DigitalOcean's Nameservers, I believe that allowing the user to select a droplet rather than having to type/paste the droplet's IP. This is already doable when adding a new domain, but not when adding a record to an existing domain. This would be very useful when changing a subdomain from one droplet to another, as as of now, that requires finding the droplet and copying the IP.

When adding a new domain:
When editing an existing domain:

Of course, not having this menu only adds a few seconds, but the code already exists (as shown in the first screenshot) to do this and every second counts.

    Thank you for the feedback. We recently made a good number of UX updates to Domain management including the ability to select from your Droplets or enter an IP address. We think it's definitely easier than having to copy/paste.
