Lightroom Shared Collections: Clients Need to View Their Favorites

Sharing collections through Lightroom is so close to being awesome, but clients not having a way to filter their selections makes it almost unusable for me.

After sharing a collection with a client, I might ask them to pick their 200 (out of 2000) favorites for retouching. Once they go through the first time marking all the photos they like, they have no way of viewing the photos they marked as favorites to further pare their selection down.

This is compounded with the fact that sometimes photos they mark as favorite are instead marking the photo next to it as a favorite. If they could view which ones they marked, it would help them verify those are the ones they actually wanted to favorite. This happens often enough to be a problem even when asking clients to pick their favorite 10 out of 100.

I like the idea of better participation of clients in my workflow, directly in Lightroom too. I used Jeffrey Friedls plugin 'Any Comment' for a workarround, did you give that one a trie?
