[Suggestion] View thresholds for Top %'s on Trends

It occurred to me the other day that the ability to view what the thresholds for various percentages on the trends page could be useful for figuring out how much further you need to advance in a stat. For instance; with disposable income, I'm at 75 thousand (give or take a few dollars), but I have no idea how much higher I'd need to get it before I make it into the top 1% of the world. It would be nice to have an option that you can toggle that would demarcate where the top 10%, 5%, and 1% boundaries are. It'd be possible to figure out already by manually hunting nations down, but that's pretty impractical especially if you want to check multiple stats.

Here's an example to demonstrate kind of what I'm talking about.

if we're tracking these threseholds it wold be interesting to chart them the same way we do world averages, that way we could see how top loaded the state is and if that's changing.

Yeah, that's actually a really good idea that hadn't even occurred to me. Even nicer would be the ability to switch between the two; view it either as an absolute threshold (like my picture) or as a long-term trend.
