RSA-RTE: Enable searching in Parent / Derived tree

RSA-RTE 9.1.1. CP2: In Rose-RT it was possible to search using the scope in an inheritance view (Parent and or derived tree). This was used heavily by a number of engineers. (See attached Rose-RT search dialog). In RSA-RTE the thing which comes the closest is to Navigate -> Show in -> Inheritance explorer. Then select Find/Replace from the inheritance explorer and use the 'Scope' selection. But with this setting you can not search up or down the inheritance tree.

Request to enable searching through the inheritance tree.
