way to make (re)composable diagrams?

any ways or ideas on if possible to make it so one could list out all diagram elements/connections and then use that to generate other more focused diagrams - to highlight different aspects of the documented architecture.

I looked at include support but i still have to redefine/duplicate associations/links in each diagram.

I was thinking if one could add labels/tags to elements and then be able to say something like:

:selector name=maincomponent

:selector type=connection, source=maincomponent, level=2

:selector type=deploy, key:category=prod

to include compnent named "maincomponent" then add in all connections starting from maincomponent and 2 lvl out and finally add other components of type prod.

hope you can follow the idea :)

I think this is a great suggestion and I'm surprised that it hasn't been answered. I can only assume that perhaps the solution is to use some kind of content management system to automate the adjustments when you combine diagrams.
