I am building out managed metadata columns and would love to be able to display or auto assign the top term when selecting a sub term. 

Example

Term Set: Automobile

Term:

Car

 >Color

   > Blue

 

I would create a column for Car and when a user chooses Blue I would like to somehow show Blue is a child of Color.

So far the only way i see it's possible is to display entire path to term and make MM column multi-select. Not super useful as filtering, sorting and grouping with multi select gets confusing for end users.

Would be nice if Blue was selected it was identified as being a Color.
