I do agree that this would be nice. But SC provides a very powerful spreadsheet system that addresses probably quite a few of these. If you would like (and since I've been interested anyway), let me know which homework/research you would like to see, and I will see if I can do it in SC and will provide the template. If we get a few of these going, we can start a new thread and use it as a resource.
I understand that the spreadsheet functionality has a steeper learning curve than IRT's language, but it is quite flexible. So, if you would like--which one would you like to see first? I'll give it a try. Seeing how a few of these are done, assuming they can be done, will help you understand how to do these in SC. I would be remiss if I didn't mention @tomgilb who is a SC spreadsheet master.

Gap outside of yesterdays range of 10 ticks has xx% of closing
How far does a bounce off a HVN/LVN/VPOC etc typically run?
How far are these levels typically penetrated?
What if they are hit after 50,60,70,80,90,100% of ATR?
What if there is a cluster of levels within x ticks?
Ok so these are probably really hard to test but would be great to see.
In Chart Settings, Advanced Settings 2 tab, there is a volume filter--this is for any chart and would probably work as you expect when the Numbers Bars study is attached.
By the way, I haven't forgotten about the studies. I just have had little time to work on it. I did write a study that sums another study at a certain time that will help with the process. Hang in there and I'll have something as soon as I can get to it.

I've only just started using SC, so i'm still finding my way around.
I've tried using the volume filter, but that's not exactly going to work if you're trying to pick up big single lot orders. I presume it needs to be based on some sort of time component in order to isolate big lots going through at once.
Again I have on question: I wanted to implement a volume filter with combining records by price and type in Sierra Charts.
By combining records, there are many records showing up with a cumulative size over a few hundret. But when I enter a volume filter above 100, there are less records showing. Is this because the volume filter is executed first and then it combines the orders? Or is there any feature that supports this?
- true Monthly charts for (pit) sessions
-- Sierra offers a workaround via 30d (30-0-0) Intraday charts
-- but the 30d setting does not start at the 1st of each month
-- it is more or less useless as Monthly charts
-- it works nicely for Daily 1D -> 1d and Weekly 1W-> 7d
-- why not for Monthly M -> 30d or 31d or 29d ?
I asked Anthony to add a session VWAP to the DOM as an option during the webinar yesterday, he indicated he would do so. That will be great!

I may be off on this, but you can add any custom study to the DOM -- and I think it works, but not sure. You could write a generic study that takes a study from another chart and simply spits back out whatever it takes in, a wrapper basically. That would be a solution to be able to put ANY study on the DOM. I think I have done this before but I'll have to check.
