Split census from other lists
Now that city directories are coming online in a big way in FS, I find I need to be able to exclude them from historical record search results or, alternatively, focus on them.
Also, I need an “info” link here about what is a Residence type. How does it differ from Location? What is a Residence and what is a List? From search results I have not been able to figure this out.

I generally prefer to filter on "Collection", a little further down the left-hand side of the page, rather than on "Census, Residence, and Lists". As illustrated, this helps me cut down the results - although mainly to ones related to census records, which I appreciate might not quite suit your specific needs:
I can't argue with your suggestions, however.1
Filtering on collections is a good idea.
I would filter on collections more often if there were buttons to Select All and Unselect All within each of the types.0
