Essentially required. Honestly, what is this List By Source tab for? Without requested functionality only a worthless list with no added value. By displaying the source path the user naturally expects that there is a possibility to change the source destination. Other ideas to enhance TOC List By Source:
Advanced Edit Session Management
(part Edit Session Control),
Advanced TOC Visual Interface
Improve TOC Interactivity

The only value of the Source tab is that it lets you access Standalone tables. But you only need to do that when you want to open the table directly or make it the primary table in a join. Otherwise you don't really need it unless you want to see the directory arrangement (view only) which is rarely the case.
