It would be great if we could have "smart" Collection Sets as well as Smart Collections - ie. to be able to group a bunch of Smart Collections *inside* a new Smart Collection to organise them.

For instance - I have Smart Collections of my "selects" for each model, filtered by star rating and model name etc. but the list gets big and is not ordered by date unless I adopt a Date-based naming convention which I don't want to do.

So I want to be able to create new Smart Collection Sets for "selects from last month", "selects from last 3 months", "selects from previous 3 months" etc. These would include all qualifying* Smart Collections also containing images with a "created date" in the specified timeframe.

*qualifying Smart Collections could be determined either by All Smart Collections, All Smart Collections within an existing Collection Set (or Smart Collection Set) or by a tag/attribute attached to the Smart Collection - eg. a text flag such as "#include_in_dated_collections"
