Lightroom: Catalog back-up folder locations (preferences) - inadequate

I have recently found that Lightroom can only store up to 5 back-up folder locations in its preferences file.

I would like to know how, apart from changing the backup folder location at the catalog backup dialog or changing my catalog structure, a back-up folder location can be assigned to each category.

Or I would like to suggest that the back-up folder location should be one folder specified with Lightroom creating a folder in that location for each catalog by using the catalog name.

For example you could have something like this based on Catalog names:

C:\LR Cat Backup\ (backup folder)
Then for each catalog:
C:\LR Cat Backup\ 2008 LR
C:\LR Cat Backup\ 2009 LR
C:\LR Cat Backup\ 2015 LR

Sometimes it is an issue especially if you have catalog's based on years or you have more than 5 catalog's.
