DAX Query Language Visual

I see big value in creating a visual that can display the results of a DAX query. One way this could be deployed is a follows.

* Add the new visual to the report canvas

* Write a DAX query that returns a table (of course) and add this to the visual

* The visual would respect any cross filtering coming from the report just like any other visual.

This would give report writers very granular control to display records without having to use a table visual and a measure that triggers the display of the correct records.
