WTH - can't I configure recorder, infuxdb, etc. policy with the entity?

I’d really like to be able to set the inclusion/exclusion policy for what gets written to the recorder database and the InfluxDB integration with the entity, rather than listing the entity_id in the configuration of the recorder or influxdb component.

Ideally, I’d use the customize UI or just add an a property in the YAML configuration as appropriate. This makes it easier to have it all say up-to-date in the event an entity_id gets renamed along the way.

More generally, it would be nice if I could add other properties to entities that I could use in automations, rather than having to maintain policy/state for an entities in multiple places.

Since influx is a component, and not part of core, I’m not sure how feasible that is to put directly on the GUI.

As for the recorder and logger settings being accessable via the GUI, that’s a duplicate of this one:
