Keep all surfaces with Trim Surface

If I make a flat surface I would like to be able to draw trim lines and divide my surface into multiple bodies. This would save a lot of time when setting up for FEA with surfaces that intersect. Similar to the split feature (for solid bodies) or the split line (except it remains one body).

The surface feature could be setup within the Trim Surface feature by just allowing you to keep all of the surfaces and splitting it into multiple bodies.

I think this would save alot of time with FEA setup of intesecting surfaces within a model since each surface has to be broken up at each intersecion.

If there is another way to do this let me know but otherwise help me push this ti SWX as an important enhancement.
