I like that idea too.
Another issue with those pan-RHP tables is paging. Take for example the player tables sorted by rating. Right now there are 6,026 active players, meaning 301 pages worth at 20 names per page. If I'm interested to see a ratings-ranked list of the players with scores around, say, 1300, that might mean the 130th such page, but there's no easy way to get there. The Google-style paging helper at the bottom gives pages 1-20 and one-page-at-a-time maneuvering beyond 20. Adding a "next ten pages" link would help, a "go to page number ___" option would be better, and your search-constraint capability would be best.
