Not likely to happen anytime soon - it is quite useful if you use it to plan your next strikes during a war, once you know where there fleets are and where they are heading. That is it's purpose. If you want a permanent version of it, try Deep Cover.
You do not understood me...
I do not want to make it last forever, i nfact I want to do what you sugested exactly, use the operations map to plan my next attacks.
The problem is: there are no list of enemy forces and planets, you have to in a very boring manner pause the game, and go clicking ship by ship and checking if they are your target or something worthy to target...
It is VERY ridiculous to have to do this...
You need a list of stuff revealed with the operations map, so you can take a look at it and for example see there is a relic ship vulnerable, or a troop fleet heading to you...
EDIT: This is not a game rule issue, it is a interface issue.
