Looking around on this forum, it wouldn't surprise me if you had no more than three "powerusers" like me in the past eight years asking for things like this - I suspect most people who bought the program don't come here at all, or at most pop in and ask a question or two and then never come back as they move to other things. If we have to wait til you're asked a lot of times by a lot of people before you consider adding something... we'll be waiting for a very very long time, since you don't even have "a lot of people" here to start with.
Route types exist, btw, so you can filter them in the display.
OK, but if you have that, what's the use in preventing people from searching for that and and writing plugins that do things with that too? "What planets are on which types of route?" is not an obscure, specialised question by any means. It's a pretty gaping hole in the functionality of the program - it's kinda ridiculous that I have to manually add something like a "political affiliation" or some other Body field that can be targeted in order to be able to select these objects in a plugin.
