category template matches ancestor category, single post matches category filename

Dear wordpress developers,
There's two features which I think would be very useful in the wordpress template selection process. The first relates to categories - currently a category template file will be selected when the category of the selected post matches the filename of the template (category-catfoo.php). Because categories are hierarchichal (can be sub-categories) I suggest that if it can't find a template for the current category it should also also try to match ancestor template files.
The other feature which I suggest would be useful, is single post template matching using category names. For example, single-catfoo.php. This could also match on ancestor categories if none is found immediately (single-catrootfoo.php).
