Bus folders

I think it would be great if we could organize our busses in specific folders that can be named:

I use and update a mix I/O setup that currently contains several hundred busses, each for a specific job for a specific instrument (e.g. Bus Drums, Drum Effect 1 etc.). When I want to assign these busses in the edit or mix window, the busses are presented to me in groups of 128 (see attached picture), which can be extremely tedious when setting up a new mix session - for example the "Drum Effect 1" bus may be found at the bottom of the "bus menu 1-128" folder, whereas the "Bus Drums" bus would somewhere in another bus menu. Worse, as I add busses in the I/O setup, the existing busses shift through the bus menus according to their position in the I/O setup.

If I could have the option to assign my busses to specific bus folders, say the "Drum Effect 1" and "Bus Drums" busses to a "Drums" folder, this workflow could be much improved. Thank you!!!
