"Include PreRelease" checkbox not sufficient

When managing nuget packages from the UI in Visual Studio, on the "Updates" tab there is an "Include Prerelease" checkbox. When this is ticked it shows you pre-release packages as updates.

However solutions are often using stable releases of some packages, and using pre-release versions of some other packages. For example my solution is using the stable release of "Serilog" package, and the latest "Pre-Release" package of Xamarin.Forms. In this scenario I would like the Updates tab to show pre-release updates for the Xamarin.Forms package, and only stable updates for the "Serilog" package.

In other words, in addition to the global checkbox that forces showing pre-release updates for all packages in the solution, it would be nice if pre-release updates could also be shown "only for pre-release packages." and not stable ones.
