Logix Designer 5000 Tag Organization

Has anybody found a clever way, or made an plug-in, for organizing tags in Logix 5000? I like to use named constants, rather than hard-coded constants for readability, but having so many constants clogging up the Controller Tags window is kind of a pain. Would love to be able to make sub-folders within the Controller Tags section.

Have you considered making a UDT named "Constants" ?

That would be great! If we could make online edits to UDTs. Almost what I need
