Add custom message text friend requests?

I've just got a gold account and decided I wanted to add some friends for some multiplayer games, but I want to send a message with the request so that folks will know I'm adding them for a specific game, e.g., Rock Band. When I attempt to add a friend though, the right screen shows what the message will look like, but doesn't give me a way to edit it. The only options on the left screen are "Edit Recipient", "Add Voice" and "Send Request". What would I have to do to edit the message that goes with the friend request?

You can't. You can send them a text message before or after the friend request though.

They have changed the friend request system, You use to be able to find someone then send them a message and verify it was them before sending the request. But now all you have is the add voice, and send friend request. Think this came about with the new dashboard.
