Group By Header Row (instead of as Column 1)

Group By Header Row (instead of as Column 1)

In addition to the Group By summary FOOTER row with aggregated data, it would be nice to have a Group By HEADER Row (to introduce a new Group of records)
What would be really neat is that the Group by field (say field 5 in the example below) is NOT a column in the report table.

In other words, move the Group By field to a header row (rather than column 1).
This is neater, saves space, and is more logical in how reports are structured.

======================================
Field 1 Field 2 Field 3 Field 4
======================================
- Group 1 header Field 5 - (4 records)
______________________________________
Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4
Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4
Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4
Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4
______________________________________
- Group 1 footer - (aggregations...)
======================================
- Group 2 header Field 5 - (3 records)
______________________________________
Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4
Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4
Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4
______________________________________
- Group 2 footer - (aggregations...)
======================================
- Group 3 header Field 5- (3 records)
______________________________________
Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4
Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4
______________________________________
- Group 3 footer - (aggregations...)
======================================
