GUI enhancements for large installations #5 grouped networks

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.
#5 is grouped networks. Again, on a border route you may have hundreds or even thousands of subnets or IPs in a group.
5a allow CSV view/edit. paste in a list instead of one at a time
5b a tool to auto-collapse redundant subnets. i.e. if all 16 /28s out of a /24 are in the group, replace them with a single /24 entry (that one is not really for me, I have an external tool to do that, but it is useful)

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