Yes, this makes plenty of sense.  I'll put it on the to-do list.  Thank 
you for the suggestion -

This isn't feasible because some satellites in a View might have been 
updated at different times.  For example, updating the Amateur group 
from Space-Track.org does not update all the amateur satellites.  Only 
those elements which "consist of the most recent elset for every object 
in the specified group that has received an update within the past 30 
days" are included.
