Highlight blown colour channels.

Just like how you can highlight completely blown areas, can you make a tool that highlights areas that only blow one or two colour channels? I couldn't find this facility in lightroom, photoshop or through google.

Note: the color of the triangles above the histogram tell you some color channel information about the blown areas.

Blue & Green & Red denote individual color channels blown
Cyan & Yellow & Magenta denote two color channels blown
White indicates all color channels are blown.

blown areas and then blown how - because raw channel is blown or you are OOG for example or because of WB or whatever... ACR is lacking in that department

It doesn't show where in the image has been affected though.

It's a dumb way of doing it because a single blown colour channel can be tricky to spot,whilst fully blown areas are pretty darned obvious.

you need to use tools like

1) http://www.fastrawviewer.com

or

2) http://www.rawdigger.com

but certainly a button or check box in ACR to show the real clipping in raw channels will be good, but alas...
