Link Related Reports via Report Defined Filters rather than User Defined Filters

When creating a Parent Report/ Child Report relationship, and linking the Reports via Filters, the Child Report needs to have a 'User Defined Filter' to link the Reports.

This means that when running the Child Report independently, the Filter that is used to connect these two Reports is exposed the end User, which is not always wanted. In order to get around this, a copy of the Child Report needs to be created, with the 'User Defined Filter' removed, which increases maintenance effort and inconsistency.

It would be useful to have a 'Report Defined Filter' that is used to link Reports together, but is hidden/ disabled from the end User so that the same Report can be used when viewed as part of a Parent/ Child relationship, or as an independent Report.
