Fixing Placement Names

I noticed that device Placement names are now only able to be pulled from a static list of pre-defined names (attic, living room, basement, etc). I would like to be able to use custom place names instead of just the pre-defined list. 
Also, why have this field as part of the device information if you can't search on it? If I do a search on all devices in my basement, even if I have Basement as a Placement Name, search does not return those devices, UNLESS I add "Basement" to the actual device name. Search effectively doesn't even consider Placement Name as a key. Sooooo... either remove it and let us figure out a better way to assign the location of the device or let us add custom locations that get included in the search results.

    Totally agree!
    BTW, why is the upvote arrow absent on this post? I just upvoted another post, so I seem to be logged in correctly, etc?
