Hi Oliver,
In the meanwhile, you could use something like the following, directly or as aliases:

~modeldisp ~@*
~modeldisp @*

...for nonatomic (e.g. map) or atomic models only, respectively.
I hope this helps,

I would envision both the model and map checkboxes working as toggles, checked by default, but one could uncheck either to temporarily undisplay all maps/models, and then check the box again to return to the previous state.
