Re-categorizing accounts

I’ve been toying around with this idea a bit, not sure if it would meet the needs of the majority of the folks having problems with mis-categorized accounts:

With some custom Javascript I could easily visually ‘move’ an account let’s say from ‘Cash’ to ‘Investments’ and re-calculate the Accounts total on-the-fly . The caveat is that this change would only affect the Overview page, the Trends page would still be wrong without a server-side fix from Mint. Also obviously the mobile apps would continue being wrong as well.

If this partial solution is something that you think is worth pursuing please vote/reply to this post. If there’s enough interest I could add it to the next version of my Chrome extension
