Eg - if my suggestion of numerical searches would be implemented - I could 
store a search for "chainage>=1221 and chainage <=1835" as "Design-section 
1", without remembering (!) and re-typing the criteria.

Yes, if I know that similarly named images are present I can search for them 
by label. However, browsing through images sorted by filename would make 
finding such images and assigning identical properties to them much easier.
