There aren't many, if any, Adobe folk that visit here (although I think *Q is - a somewhat-rare appearance lately). Usually when they are they focus on postings involving software issues/bugs.... but you can try submitting ideas using the link below...
Adobe - Wishlist & Bug Report
Thanks so much! I figured this wasn't the place but thought I'd put it out there. I'll use the link too though. Thanks again!

I'm here, Ned. And Yes, the wishlist is the best place to post any enhancement request for further review.
This is a wonderful request and will need careful planning due to several factors. The first issue I see is filter being specific to movieclip only so it can not be applied to a graphic symbol. The second is that if we are to reapply the filter and other effects to the symbol after break apart, what happen if the inner symbol already have this effect at a different value. Lots of things to consider and think about in the design as well as engineering of this request.

While "flattening" layer styles like blur, dropshadows, etc. would be great, the most helpful (and easiest to implement I think) would just be the color shifting, I'm guessing it would just be a case of transposing the current table of color values to the original. If you can put that in, that would be awesome!
