Javascript files appear in Extras folder?

Ive just discovered that the javascript files which accompany a patch intended for use as an ‘Extra’ also become visible under the Extras menu in MAX5.
Is there any point to that? Wouldn’t it make more sense that MAX filtered out everything except actual patches it can run? All it currently does is open the file for editing, which is pretty useless in that context…

You should be able to save the javascript that your "extras" patch uses elsewhere in the max search path. I created an extra folder on my harddrive in my directory of max projects along with my own abstractions and pointed Max towards it using Options > File Preferences.
