Show entities in relation type delete overview

The delete summary of entities at the Actor relation view is only showing entities linked to the current type and not the entities connected to the subtypes. It should functions like the rest of the delete overview, that one can view all entities.

I looked into it and it seems that in both cases (relation or "normal" type) it shows the subs in a tab including a count how many there are and also an entity tab for entities directly connected to this type, see:

So for me it looks absolutely fine but I'm not sure if I missed something.
That's why I turned this issue into a question. Please either close or elaborate, what I'm missing.

Thank you for clarification. I think I understand now, all entities with this type or a subtype of it should be listed in the entities tab.
Not sure how helpful this is because the subs (counts) are listed already in an own tab and even when clicking on the move button (where now all entities are shown) you still can only move the entities of the one selected type.

Anyway, at least I made the behavior of relation types consistence to the behavior of "normal" types before this release. Is already in the release_candidate branch (and also merge to develop).
I leave it up to you if we leave it at that or you want to rethink the delete type recursive functionality in general.
