Bridge CC: Renaming Favorites

If I drag a folder into the Favorites panel, the foldername appears. If I use several folders with the same name in different locations, it's hard to identify them.
In this case I would see "Name" twice in the panel.
It would be great if we could rename the favorites in the panel without effecting the original foldername.

I'm not positive, but I think we can't rename them because they're aliases. If you ever have worked over WiFi with your other computer that was offline at the time, you'll have seen a Favorite you click on disappear, leaving behind only a question mark. Bridge won't  tell you it can't find the folder, yet leave it intact. So I'm not sure it could cope with a name change—not unless it can learn to keep a list of the real names behind your name changes—possibly yet another potential point of corruption.<sigh>
