Add Property - Render Variable - to Pageset similar to what we have in Page

When we have conditional Page Rendering Requirement via Render Variable we see that -
Applying Render Variable to Page - Works Fine
Applying Render Variable to Pageset - DOES NOT HAVE THE FEATURE

So what happens - When we have 2 Different Pagesets because we need 2 different Page Breaking Condition in the same report - We have applied the Rendering property to the Page as per the Conditional Rendering rule. Although this works for the page, but it does not work for the Pageset, since for a Pageset - It does not know the page within it is being Rendered Yes or No unless it runs it, and so if it is rendered NO - it shows a Blank Page.
The issue does not occur in Static HTML, PDF and EXCEL formats only occures in Interactive HTML Format

We want to have Render Variable Property in Pageset as well.
