GUI Enhancement Suggestion for Live Migration

I operate a cluster that has many DRBD nodes.
Because I am using DRBD I can only live migrate a single VM between two specific nodes.
My storage is marked identifying what nodes have access to the various DRBD volumes.

I find it very annoying that when I pull up the migration menu it shows all of the nodes when I can only migrate between two of them.
Also the order of the names in the dropdown are not sorted by name adding more frustration.

My suggestion is to add a checkbox on the migration dialog box that reads:
Only show nodes with access to same shared storage

When that is checked, the dropdown is filtered to only show the nodes that I can Live Migrate to.
