GUI enhancement for large installations #3 network=>LAN=>static routes

We are running into some serious management issues with our hub SDX-PRO routers, which have between 500 and 800 speedfusion profiles and upwards of 1200 static routes or outbound policies and some grouped networks with many entries.
The issues are not bugs - the router is working as designed. Rather they are evidence that although an SDX-PRO can handle 800 SF peers and an EPX 4000…no one on the GUI dev side has actually USED one with that kind of volume in use. Frankly, I cannot imagine managing thousands of peers/routes etc the way it is now.
I am going to break this up into multiple requests, as there are five different ones I would like to see, but they are unrelated to each other, other than that they are about capacity.
#3 is about static routes - current implementation is add/edit/delete one at a time. It is VERY COMMON in managing large border routers to have hundreds or thousands of static routes. We have all these due to having multiple SF concentrators and fusionhubs. So after the 800 SF peers on the SDX pro we have 300 each on two B710s (our old routers) then more on fusionhubs.
3a Add option to switch from form fields to a text box and allow CSV to be pasted in, like:
10.106.39.160/28,66.11.11.5
10.106.39.176/28,66.11.11.6
10.106.39.192/28,66.11.11.5

On all the juniper and cisco border routers I have used, this is how we managed large sets of routes - switch to CSV view and paste in a new set.

We are implementing this. Target to support it in the coming firmware release tentatively.
