Controlling VERICUT with Comment Records

Sometimes it's very useful to use PPRINT/VERICUT-COMMAND to control/force things in Vericut.

The commands:
VERICUT-COMMAND remove_model_by_name “...”
VERICUT-COMMAND load_model_by_name "..."
are very useful if during a setup the program is interrupted (with an M0) and the machine operator has to replace or add some fixturing equipment.

When using this I have to make sure that the visibility of the fixturing equipment is set to only workpiece view.
Fixturing visible in the machine/cut-stock view are not influenced by these commands and therefore might/will generate false collisions.
This is also described in the help:

See: CGTech Help library > Automating Vericut > Controlling VERICUT with Comment Records
> VERICUT-COMMAND Record
   >  load_model_by_name "<component name>"
       Makes a pre-defined model(s), referenced by its component name, "visible" in Workpiece
       views in the VERICUT display. (See also "remove_model_by_name")


I would like to see this functionality enhanced so that remove and load do not only work on the workpiece view, but also on the machine and machine/cut-stock views.
