Structure tab and Drag and Drop (again)

My absolute largest pet peeves with IDEA

Structure Tab
Why aren't external files processed in the Structure tab. There is absolutely no reason why these files' structures cannot be displayed in this tab. I often work with other Java code and JavaScript code and XML/HTML code from outside of a given project but since navigation with these files is difficult I have to use jEdit to parse them. At least their tool works well regardless in this aspect.

Drag and Drop
C'mon guys, it's now the beginning of version 6 of IDEA where is drag and drop support for files. I am not even talking about something as potentially complex as refactoring I am simply talking about dropping a file on the IntelliJ window and having it perform a File->Open File... functionality. Please add this. It is desired by many people.
