Wall Airspace should be transparent

I have large air spaces in my walls for ductwork and plumbing, the material itself is fully transparent in both Appearance and Graphics. It is also marked as an airspace in the wall definition. Despite this, the walls only show the plumbing that traverses through the view, nothing in "elevation". It's like the wall is filled with white "Goop" instead of being empty.

It would be nice for airspaces to just show what is inside the wall cavities, especially if it is marked as a wall airspace and totally transparent. This would help with coordination.

This would also be very helpful with creating layered glass (double paned etc) panels and walls.

There should at least be an option for the material to show as transparent (material being air gap). Sometimes you may want this opaque to not show floors etc that may be modeled under the walls.
