Reorder Work Features and Component Patterns in Assembly browser

I can not drag/reorder Work Features and Component Patterns in the assembly browser. I see no reason why this is not possible. Please fix this, thank you.

Also, Bolted Connections can't be reordered. WHY, WHY, WHY??? I presume other types of design accelerators have the same issue.

Patterns also cannot be promoted/demoted to existing assemblies, and similarly for Tube & Pipe components. There's no reason why this shouldn't be possible, either, and it's a crucial feature in my opinion. Might we see this added any time soon?

I'm trying to put a component pattern in a folder in the browser but unless the folder is at the bottom this can't be done. We have multiple folders in our base asemblies so we can copy design the base to a project and remove components specific to the project by removing appropriate folders. To make our lives easier we have the folders at the top of the browser but if component patterns are involved this doesn't work. Seems like a simple enough request. Would love to see some action on this.
