None that are approved would add that to the HUD/Tracker. The HUD will show you a number representing a villains activity (overall) and that is the VPIP. Typically VPIP relates to a hand strength chart so a VPIP of 15 will correlate very closely to that player playing the top 15% of hands. VPIP is nice but it is an overall value that does not take into consideration position variations that most decent player employ.
If you have a good gut feel on hand strength ratings, you won't have to think much to relate that VPIP to a hand range. If you have not had a hand strength chart handy, print one out while you are learning your HUD, and learn it via quick checks when you need to. If you are a savant, memorize it.
The most recent versions of the trackers can provide a better breakdown of positional actions. With a click you can get expanded stats on your villains.
If you give yourself credit for improving, you need to also give credit (to some degree) that your villains will be improving. IMHO, unless you are playing the same people day after day, massive numbers of hands on a player mean little. A few days worth of numbers gives me info on how a player is playing recently, huge numbers of hands give me numbers skewed by how that player was playing 2 years ago. I much prefer to know how he is playing today, not last year.
