      Description

      This is a really desired functionallity from our users since we have OFFICIAL SECTIONS (readOnly) (introduced by ' https://jira.sakaiproject.org/browse/SAK-23495' and managed by the property "section.info.readonly.section.categories").

      Therefore, our instructors have a really common use case where they want to divide those sections up into smaller groups and it is very important for them to be able to filter the list of students by those readOnly SECTION. readOnly sections do not appear in the dropdown menu by default so this improvement will introduce those 'readOnly' sections in the dropdown menu.

      This should not affect any existing functionallity in the tool, it is just an improvement that will include more filtering options in the menu.

      We are deploying the option into production this week locally and after some more testing, we plan to contribute the fix/improvement. Comments welcome!
