Why can't we exclude certain objects while watching models in sections?

I am an educator for engineering students. Many of the manual drafting books show inner parts of an assembly without section. 

Your software has given me immense power in showing students interactive models. I was hoping that you'd insert the option to deselect few parts while creating section. 

Also the option to be able to create half sectional views (with upper half in section & lower half without section) sounds equally tempting.

Hope you pin it to your update chart.
