I like these two proposed enhancements.

 From my point of view some more UX efforts should be invested in order to 
figure out these functions in more detail from the UX perspective.
Then, at least one developer have to show up for the implementation. I am 
interested, but I do not know, if I will have the time to do it. But I would 
offer my support for the development.

Best regards, Oliver.
