Adding an optional expert field to colouring rules?

I sometimes add colouring rules for some condition I am only interested in
for a short time (i.e. its not worth adding expert info for to the relevant
dissector). Then, I want to quickly find the frames that match that
condition. I realise that I can use filtering rules such as:
frame.coloring_rule.name == "The Rule Name"
but it would be convenient to have a field where I could choose the
severity of the expert item (including, as default, none). Then, when a
rule matches, expert info would be added (using the rule name), and I could
- see that the condition happened (if it causes the circle to change colour)
- see how many times it happened
- browse to instances from the expert info window
Would others find this feature useful? Would it seem wrong to
configure/generate expert info from 'Coloring Rules...' ? The expert info
item itself would be in the 'Frame' tree, rather than at the item for the
display filters used in the rule filter expression.
