Can SF allow items, that are subsumed by (ie a part of) another request
item that covers the first, to be marked not as deferred, but as 'refers

that is simply put off.

True, they could be added to the bottom of the generated list. That
would be very useful.

I think all this should make development reporting streamlined, simple,
easy to do, remove duplication of info and effort, and help ensure the
info is accurate and easy for users to relate to any specific requests
they are interested in following.
