Select by Symbology

So often do I have a defined symbology based on 3 categories and want to make a selection of a particular set but I'm forced to use select by attribute. It would be nice to be able to right click on a symbology item in the TOC and just choose select records.

e.g. I have created a symbology base on 3 categories and realize there are some weird anomalies in my attributes that I didn't expect. I want to then investigate what features these are and if then need to be corrected. Rather than use select by attribute and have to create indivdual queries, it would be much more time efficient to select each of these anomaly categories in the TOC and investigate that way.

Desktop will show you the count of features falling in to each symbology class. So yes, add the ability to select and/or view the table records driving those feature counts without setting up completely independent select by attribute statements.
