Add taxonomies to Events+

I'd like to show in the home page two lists of events.

The broad idea is to show first a list of featured events (most of the times would no more than one), then a list of upcoming events (including or excluding the featured one, doesn't really matter).

The two lists would be also styled differently.

Right now this is not possible with the normal Upcoming Events widget, especially because Events don't have a check box to mark them as featured/sticky or a taxonomy to filter them by category/tag.

Adding taxonomies on my own is easy, but also useless until Event+ features (read: widgets) don't allow to filter contents by taxonomy term.

May I expect this feature to be added in a next release of the plugin?
