MOVE Help typo

#1
The Help for "MOVE" says, "If the source is a subdirectory and the target doesn't exist, the target subdirectory will be created and the source tree moved to is." The final "is" should be "it".

Is there a reason you can't move more than one source directory tree at a time to a target directory?

Because it would be complicated without being useful? And/or because nobody has ever asked for it?
I would like it, please. For example, I had five directories in a folder. I decided that three of the directories would be better in a subdirectory. So, I tried

move Dir1 Dir2 Dir3 NewDir\

I had to move them one at a time, instead.

I'd also like an easy way to move them back if I change my mind, e.g.,

move * ..\

Maybe a new command (e.g., MOVEDIR) would be best.

How about just using move /D ....
