Filter list from common entity

i've created a 'status' entity that is used across multiple entities.  the status entity is created with the following attributes: status, filter, isactive.  filter is used to identity the statuses to be used for entity the status entity is related to.  for example, phone entity has 'active', 'not in use', 'retired' as its statuses.  i let the platform create the phonedetail screen for me, the status combo box properties shows the source entity is status and source attribute is status.  my question comes down to, can i filter the status entity to limit what statuses are displayed in the combo box without having to create an additional aggregate with the filter just for status?

Did you already tried to use 'special list' on the combobox?
