Could it be a sieve only feature?

Sorry I wasn't clear. On the filter rule screen, one of options in the 
drop down says "Deliver to this mailbox". I think it would be better if 
it said "Move to this folder".
To the right of the drop down there's a text box (or edit field, if you 
prefer). It would be nice if instead it was a drop down with the list of 
folders. You'd end up with something like:
<select name='action'>
    <option>Move to this folder</option>
<select name='actionvalue'>
    <option value='INBOX.foldername'>Foldername</option>

I hope that's clearer.
