Merging Bins from Local and Federated Sources

This has been suggested before, but it would be helpful if project-level and collection-level bins could be combined. At the very least, this would allow users to quickly separate federated content from collection-level content. The real benefit, though, would be in gleaning attributes from federated content with a custom parser and then manipulating the Watson document object with additional "content" elements. These additional elements could then be matched with similar elements in local collections (created with custom XSL converters), thus creating a seamless "bin" without regard to where the content came from.
