Default Zone Window: show time until resettable

The Zone window currently displays:
  • Zone Name
  • Time Left
  • Minimum Duration
  • Maximum Duration

If you select a zone by clicking on it, then hover your cursor over the "Reset Timer" button, the tooltip shows you how much time until the zone is resettable.

It would be much better if that info was in the table in its own column, say, add a fifth column called "Time Until Resettable" and then display the time there.

From what I can tell, reset time is calculated at the server only when you hover over the button. For the game designers this is probably preferable to tracking timers on the client. I could not find any UI elements that are actively monitoring zone reset timers -- it appears to be only on the button tooltip. If it is indeed the server calculating reset times, then I suspect showing them one at a time is to conserve bandwidth or framerate.
