Okay - I searched around for it for a while before posting the question and didn't come upon anything that matched the situation we've found, so I apologize if I duplicated topics!

Understood - I don't think I was really envisioning a different default out-of-the-box behavior, but maybe something along the lines of "if you fill in the include box, the icon overlay will only look at the items you explicitly define, and, if you leave the include box blank, the default, it will look at everything" (and exclude box would behave as expected). I've seen that style of behavior in various other pieces of software - I certainly understand that you want it to work in a certain fashion for the vast majority of folks out of the box.

Thanks for the suggestion - we will look into doing this.
