"Smart" Table Occurrences

Post

     Hi, from googling around I'm pretty sure this isn't possible but I thought I'd check to see if anyone has some latest tricks.  I'm looking for something like Bento's smart collections, where a filtered table can be a source for a layout.

     I can get most of the way there by doing things like using find and found sets, but I'm particularly interested in something where a layout is used specifically for a subset of what is in a table.  For instance a "Songs" table has a "Recording Type" column, where one of the values is "Original", and I want a layout that is just for the Originals.  I could script it by making it always "Find" originals when I enter the layout, but that just seems kind of clunky, plus the "Show All" button could confuse things.  Are there any ways to, say, make a table occurrence always dynamically represent a subset of what would normally be in the table?
