Sorry, if i ask in wrong place, but...

Can i suggest one small addition to classes system? Possibility to bind some classes and server group/roles?

I mean, say, nomad/wanderer classes automatically go into groups with smaller claims, commoner, smith, clockmaster to group with default claim sizes and farmer have big claims?
