There are two adjustments I always thought that would be useful, specially for "playlist oriented" users:

1- When a playlist is saved, the WPS should be able to display the playlist name, i.e. the playlist name should be updated with the said name, and a WPS using the %pn tag should display the new name from that moment on.

2- When playback is started through a playlist (or according to 1-, the dynamic playlist is saved and therefore "has a name"), and the playlist gets modified(*), it would be great that the base playlist name could reflect this. This could be achieved by adding a "*" or a "(mod)" to the original playlist name in %pn, like "PlaylistName*"

(*) by modified I mean tracks added or deleted in any way, I would exclude the cases when the playlist is just reshuffled or when only the playback order is just changed in any way
