Simplified Glazing Inputs

I know this has been asked before, but for repetition: it would be really helpful if we could just put in a U-Value and SHGC for glazing rather than having to build a construction up (similar for opaque, but that's easier to adjust). At the initial stages of projects we don't know what the glass will be, and often we never do because the contractor decides that later. As modelers/engineers we generally test out different options to provide a minimum performance spec. It would be so much easier if I could just test a theoretical glass construction in a range of U values and a range of SHGCs.
