actually, this is something that can be extended to a lot of other items - devices, for instance. For many items, quality plays a minor role (houses, warehouses, containers, carts), but the durability of all items and buildings is affected by quality, so the decay time is affected, too.
well, you can see the durability, but you cannot see the quality. It could be done with the same menu - "inspect item" -> shows the durability and the quality, I think that will not be too difficult? ... just have to define logs as applicable to "inspect item" and define the shown values with quality added?
