579 - Aura filters ambiguous

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

Add verbose descriptions to the aura filters

Please provide any additional information below.

I've been trying to set up debuff filters that show me "hostile" debuffs on my raid members.  (see ticket 578.)  Did I want "Default Debuff"?  This showed me the ones I could dispel, it seemed.  How about "All friend debuffs"? "All enemy debuffs"?  The list of items in the advanced list was enourmous, and it was some time before I realized why most of them didn't show up in the layout editor.  None of the short filter labels made any sense to me; I couldn't figure out a pattern to what they did.   (until I read the code and then started digging through the filters researching 578.)

So I suggest a little description blurb that shows up in the blank space to the right of the "current filter" dropdown in the filter editor.  This would be your spot to explain what the filters do and how they're expected to be used.

(This has been the only aspect of setting up PB4 that I really stumbled on.)
