Content discovery is not directly mapped to site map

Hi, Performing content discovery and looking at the Site map of the discovery process one can see that the items found are not reported directly to the main 'Target Site Map'. In many cases and with the current setup of discovery session one might not want to wait for the process to complete as it's visibly generating a lot of requests for directories that are not vital on the recon process ( /icons /images ), but do take a lot of time and a lot of requests for completion.

Updating on my own post, this depends on the view. By default the Target Site map is not showing directories that are not empty but contain images. I guess this is due to filter on the images which makes the directory also not displayed.
