Analyze Volume Terrain model misses the old "Triangle Volume report" option

When using the "Analyze Volume Terrain model" tool the only way to save the result is to place a text in the dgn file. As in the legacy product (PowerCivil/InRoads) we need to be able to save a report (eg. using TriangleVolumes.xsl) ...it should b...

Item Type Expression that References a Terrain

Similar to the new Station/Offset Expressions, it would be great to query a terrain in an item type on an element and return the elevation. It would be used primarily for point cells, but I could also see it being useful for linework.
