Interesting idea, but would probably require some design concepts to
see if it would be useful / usable.

I'm not certain I agree with a tree view for two reasons:  First, a
large scale environment typically has too many elements for a tree to
be the best method of navigation.  Second, it leads to the same type
of problem of too many clicks to get to something important.

Those two reservations can sometimes be dealt with pretty elegantly by
coupling a tree with a really simple (but useful) quick search
feature.
