Non-combat vessel destruction

Non-combat vessel destruction
This is a minor complaint, but I often find it to be a small, regular irritant.

Currently when a fleet of non-combat ships enter a system with enemy combat ships, you get the following message:

"A Fleet of non-combat vessels was destroyed at the [X] System".

My problem is that when I have multiple games on the go, I'm often not clear whether this was my enemy's vessels being killed at my planets, or if I screwed up somewhere and sent non-combat ships to their doom and have to spend time figuring it out.

I'd love it if the game would distinguish those two scenarios with slightly modified messages.

"A Fleet of YOUR non-combat vessels was destroyed at the [X] System".
or
"A Fleet of ENEMY non-combat vessels was destroyed at the [X] System".
(The capitalized word is just for emphasis here, it wouldn't have to be like that in the game.)

Alternatively, instead of just generically saying "enemy", it could actually list the enemy empire by name.

I'm not sure how much programming effort this would be, or if anyone else out there would want this, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

It would also be nice if the post combat message had a little more detail, for example, "... all ten of your ships survived" or "... ten out of twelve of your ships survived" instead of "... ten of your ships survived".
