Why impediments are not seen in right column ?

I work with a V2 version of ScrumDashboard (on TFS 2008).

The ScrumDashboard displays in right column "Product Backlog" :

- items of Work Item Type = "Product Backlog Item"
- items of Work Item Type = "Bug"

... but not the Impediments ?!  (Work Item Type = "Impediment")
Why ?
Why this choice ? Is it a Scrum compliance concern ?

So, i searched for a key just like "tfsViewImpedimentsAsProductBacklogs"
but i didn't find such a stuff...

maybe, i've missed something ?

Help would be greatly appreciated, ;-)
Thanks in advance

That is how it was implemented in Scrum for Team System v2, an impediment is basically a special task (something that blocks a product backlog or bug to complete).
