LIGHTROOM: Collection Sets and Collections - an easier and better way

Does anyone besides me feel the whole idea of "Collections" vs "Collection Sets" is overcomplicated? Why not just allow a Collection to contain:

(a) Photos and
(b) other Collections?

That would make life so much easier than the current awkward scheme!

It did, once upon a time. LR3 and earlier, if I remember rightly. I can't remember the reasons it changed though, sorry.

Pretty sure it changed when smart collections were introduced, Victoria. That would make it LR2.
