Rhino Render wish - Emissive materials to show in Lights list

Would it make sense for non-orphaned emissive materials (assigned to objects) in the materials panel to show up as lights in the lights list (panel) since they contribute to illumination ? and vice versa should Rhino lights also be shown in the materials panel (since they contain color and intensity properties just as the emissive material) ?

This is on the list to have objects with emissive color actually be understood as lights in Rhino.
