Backreference in selections of auto playlists

I often use MMW as DLNA-Server. For searching songs using a DLNA client is nearly impossible I have defined a lot of playlists in a hierachical structure.
But if you copy a subtree, you have to change all copied playlists. Not only the name, but also the selections.
Doing so it would be very helpful, if there was a selection-term "playlist is UPx" which refers to the father (or higher) playlist in the archiv tree structure. So you have to change only all names and only the selections of the root.

PL-80s (year between 1980 and 1989)
|-PL-80s-Moodx (playlist = up1 / mood = moodx)
|-PL-80s-Party/dancing (playlist = up1 / comment contains "party"
|-PL-80s-Hits ( ... )
PL-90s (year between 1990 and 1999)
|-PL-90s-Moodx (no change to PL-80s-Moodx)
|-PL-90s-Party/dancing ( ... )
|-PL-90s-Hits ( ... )

Thank you

For search I do not see any pressing issues, but I am testing accuracy right now and see that there is space to improve.

For year listing you can use UPnP browser in MMA and navigate to Music -> Year -> 1990's -> .... and get list of tracks tagged under that year.
