Feature Request: Please add more IntelliSense suggestions

I noticed that IntelliSense support in the ENVIRONMENT DIVISION is quite sparse (see image attached).

As far as I can see, there are no suggestions for filling in INPUT-OUTPUT SECTION, FILE-CONTROL or any other sections or content therein.

I suggest to fill in the blanks and provide full IntelliSense support for the Environment Division (and other divisions, where applicable), i.e. ...

  1. suggesting all COBOL keywords (incl. appropriate division (e.g. ENVIRONMENT DIVISION), section (e.g. INPUT-OUTPUT SECTION) and paragraph (e.g. FILE-CONTROL) names), applicable at the current cursor position, and
  2. providing code snippets for common sections and paragraphs, appropriate at the current cursor position. (I.e. provide FILE-CONTROL code snippets only within an INPUT-OUTPUT SECTION.)

...

3. all identifiers at the current cursor position, as applicable.

Currently this doesn't seem to be the case (see animated GIF image attached).
