Request for possible inclusion of friends' collections features in core

Wondering if following features make sense in the core:

1) 'Friends' (i.e. All friends collection) should be listed in the Access drop-down. I know there is a patch someone in the community submitted, but perhaps this should be in the core?

2) Friends ElggObject listings should be filterable by Collection (& efficiently). e.g. Friends' activity should be filterable by collection, e.g. "Family", "Work". Ditto for Friends blogs, albums, etc.
