Virtual Networks display - improve the order of items listed, or allow the user to save a preferred order

HMC V9 and V10 GUI - the Virtual Networks display can have a high number of virtual networks listed. Please can these be ordered either by PVID ascending or by Virtual Network Name ascending to allow the user to organise the display. Alternatively, please save the last sort the user used on that screen so that it displays the important information in a logical way for the user. Similarly, the Adapters view seems to show VIOS 2 adapters first. Please ensure either the lowest partition ID VIOS or alphabetically first VIOS is shown first.
