Automatically recognise first row as headers in Azure Data Lake File Storage tool

When inputting a CSV file via the Azure Data Lake File Storage tool the default behaviour is for the first row to be interpreted as data.

 

When reading the same file locally using the File Input tool the default behaviour is for the first row to be interpreted as headers.

 

Since the majority of files will include headers on the first row, it would be helpful to have the "First row contains field names" option selected by default in the Azure Data Lake File Storage tool, and this would also bring the defaults of this tool in line with the standard File Input tool.
