Separate selection windows for layers and relationship classes (and others?)

    When adding layers from an ArcSDE database in ArcCatalog or ArcMap, an imprudent mixture of datasets, tables, views, relationships, and featuredatasets is presented (i.e. apples, pears and carrots).

    It would be nice to separate data from relationships into different windows/frames, as they have completely different meanings. Maybe there could be a type/icon selection in the header with a frame below showing the selected type entries only (layers, rasters, views, terrains, fds, relationships etc.).
    Currently, relationship classes (and featuredatasets) are listed even if the user does not have access to the data, contibuting to the cluttered list.
