BRIDGE: Nested Filters Please (Not just nested keywords!)

Nested filters would be really helpful. The nested keywords are great but I wish there was a way to dig that deep through filtering.

EXAMPLE: I have filters of Magazines, Photos, Landscapes, Portraits, Blue, Red

In filters right now if I click Photos, Red and Blue I will get all the results of Photos + results of Red + results of Blue

Instead, I wish there was a way if I clicked Photos, Red, Blue It would only give me results that were tagged with Photos, Red and Blue - thus narrowing my search instead of expanding it - but allowing me to narrow across multiple theoretical categories.

If I put in Red and Blue then I would get everything tagged with red and blue (not red or blue as it would work now)

Absolutely, I agree. I export all my photos from Lightroom with keyword hierarchies intact but the Bridge filters just flatten them, and give no options for more sophisiticated filtering -- REQUIRED with large numbers of images (Making a Collection or doing a 'Find' is too cumbersome for quick filtering. I think I'll post a separate rant;-)).
