Lightroom 4 "Saved Locations" nested folders

Having "Saved Locations" is great. However, I think there should be the capability of having nested folders, so not all Locations are on the same level. Also, to have these Locations tied to a specific catalog, or at least to have this feature as an option. E.g., I have a bunch of locations that are relevant in my personal catalog, but not in my projects catalog. Also, In my Projects catalog, I'd like to have "Kauai", "Oahu", "Big Island" under a more general "Hawaii" folder.

You can do this with Smart Collections and tagging. It all comes down to whether you want to maintain a collection of folders or a collection of metadata.

I wasn't talking about metadata or EXIF but how I can use the Map module in a more uncluttered way. I like the way I can return to a "Saved Location" when in the Map module and see what I have at a given location, or to make sure any photos I map are located properly (allowing for GPS variances). I just think the "Saved Locations" listing can be a lot handier if I can drill down nested folders -- otherwise, a large flat list becomes less than useful.

My mistake. I guess I never use that module.
