Selective filters on drillpaths

It would be helpful to be able to prevent specific filters when utilizing drillpaths on cards. Let's say you have a card with financial information, including actual, budget, and prior year, as a bar chart for each month of the year.

If a user selects a specific column in a month, they really aren't trying to see just actual/budget/prior, they are most likely wanting to see a drillpath with those elements at a deeper level. In this case, the filter for "Type" (used to distinguish active/budget/prior) could be turned off so the end user doesn't have to click on the "x" next to the "type" filter each and every time.

While a whole other dataflow could be created to account for this and remove the "type" column, that's just using extra credits/rows for something that could be handled during the drill process.
