[RFE] firewall-config: GUI does not provides 'Connections' summary, no Zone<>Connection setup

Description of problem:
firewall-config: GUI does not provides 'Connections' summary.
My initial use case was about to create bridge for virtual guests.
So I needed to add 'trusted' zone for bridge in the "Network Connection"
Then all seems to be working, virt guests via bridge and zone 'work' for eth0.
The first question is "How can one know that zone for bridge needs to be adjusted via NetworkManager not via firewalld"
Steps to Reproduce:
1, have a two connections, one for bridge, another for eth0
2, zone trusted for bridge
3, zone work for eth0
4. firewall-config should show any summary with connections and its zones.
(the same as firewall-applet when you touch the icon)
for ex.: there are mentioned in the left pane, right of "name of the zone"
or there is any view with connections summary and their default zones.
5. you can change zone in NM for selected connection.
firewall-config should change the opposite => connections for selected zone.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
no view of connections in firewall-config
firewall-config shows info about connection and its zone.
The better I can change zones for any of my connections via firewall-config. (which is propagated into NM)
This is just request and probably it needs more investigation.
But connections are really hidden from firewall-config point of view.
This has been added with firewalld version 0.4.2.
