«view» needs better icon in browser

A database view (class stereotyped as  «view») should have an icon similar to a database table in the browser, since it is closer to a table then a class.

I believe there was a variant of the «table» icon given in the original Data Modeling Profile for UML from which the Sparx approach was taken. Given the rather small size of decorations in EA the icon would be a bit different, but I think both the difference (from the «table» icon) and intended meaning would be clear.
No, you can't have it!
