This is a real game-changer for work-flow. I don't understand how anyone can survive without smart collections and have an efficient and effective wok-flow - and it's missing from Lightroom CC.
For example, when I bulk rename images to include primary keyword and location (and I have many more examples) I have smart collections for images with incomplete keywording, incomplete location data, and for those which are complete but which have yet to be renamed. Having to do all that by hand would add hours to my workflow. So do you agree that smart collections (or albums) should make it across to CC?

Don't worry about that. You can't rename images in Lightroom CC anyway!  ;-)

Agree - smart collections & albums are a game changer.  Synching a smart album to other devices / for publishing is so much easier than managing individual images.

But, I'm perhaps more relaxed about file naming.  Coming from Aperture I long ago gave up on the belt and braces of managing my library and concentrated on the meta-data.  Personally, I'd put enriching that ahead of renaming.
