Just reading this post as it is something that I have been thinking about over the last few days.
Basically I see it as working like this:
1. Next to each name in a smart macth list is a check box.
2. You can select some of the names on a page
3. Once selected you have the option of carrying out a bulk accept or reject.
Any name that you want to investigate further can still be done so by using the existing features like confirm all or reject all, make single rejects or confirmations. Or using the tree comparison feature.
