This is more of a UX address in my point of view, and may only slightly help other users vs myself.

With that said it would be really neat if the Device Navigation window had some kind of device scope change controls?

I myself tend to utilize this window a lot while testing a locked overlay under 3d view:

but what trips me up and breaks UX for me is that there is no way to change scope of the listed devices around this window. As one develops in a workflow that contains say macros, that they themselves may contain other macros, it can be a bit jarring to have to remember to use these tabs:

to change your Device Navigation list to the proper scope. I think a single button called "go to parent" would be sufficient around the existing controls here.

Thanks for listening!
