Enable Show/Hide of Multiple Sketches/Parts/Surfaces/Curves Simultaneously

Right now, you can hide or show all sketches (or parts, surfaces, curves) from the right-click menu (when clicking on a sketch). What you can't do is toggle visibility for multiple sketches (not all) at the same time. It seems like you should be able to select as many sketches as you want, and click on the eyeball icon to toggle their visibility. Since we already have the ability to hide or show all, it would be great if this new functionality truly was a toggle:

Starting visibility:

Select these three sketches:

Click on an eyeball:

Visibility is toggled, and sketches stay selected:

    @S1mon today this is done from the context menu.. not the eyeball as that is on hover of a single row.

    Hmmm. The context menu helps a lot.

    Ok. I thought it was possible to toggle a bunch of items visibility in Solidworks by clicking on the appropriate icon, so somehow it seemed like a normal expectation here too. Would it really break anything else to allow this here?
