move image to folder or collection while in Loupe or Develop view

I would like to be able to move the current image in Loupe or Develop view to another folder, without having to return to Grid view. Ideally, this would be as simple as dragging the Navigator thumbnail to a folder or collection.

In case you didn't know: While you can't move a photo to an arbitrary folder or collection, you can set the current target collection.  Right-click a collection in the Collections panel and do Set As Target Collection.  Now, when you type "B", the current photo gets added to that collection.

Thanks for the tip. My primary use case is moving to a folder; I just threw the collection bit in there for completeness.

Oh, and this doesn't go without saying, so I should add that the view should stay in Loupe or Develop after moving the current image, and the next image should be shown.

I just realized I could drag the thumbnail from the filmstrip (if that's what it's called) to any folder. I usually don't keep the filmstrip open, so I'd still like to be able to drag the Navigator thumbnail.

Good point. You can drag to both folders and collections in Library, but only to collections in Develop.
