Data Dictionary for classified variables (dimensions)

Description - I need the possibility to add descriptions to classified variables (dimensions). It would appear in the Data Dictionary, what is very helpful esp. for normal users.

Why is this feature important to you - My analytics users need to know what specific dimensions mean. Otherwise, they cannot decide on what to use.

How would you like the feature to work - Similar to normal dimensions (variables)

Current Behaviour - There is no possibility to add any descriptions to classified variables (the field is greyed-out - see screenshots).

Yes this would be very useful. Currently, classification descriptions take the description of the parent variable. Sometimes the parent description does not accurately reflect the classification definition or use. 

Perhaps add an override option, where the default is the current behavior and if you check a box you can add text to override the default text.
