More Shapes: Living Systems Theory

I have submitted shapes and sheet for Living Systems Theory as well.

Are there any guides for allowing user editable variables in the shape definitions? Is it possible to allow a dynamically expanding array of values? (Or a collection of objects, each object containing values based on the shape type.)

I would also like to be able to link SVG exported images together per the basic standard for xlink. Is there any way to increase the attention that these feature requests receive? I recall reading that linked documents were very desirable, the SVG output linking should only require edits to the exporter and not core engine of dia I think. Adding "link" as a property value may be the only necessary component.

Here is the description of the attached shapes/sheet:
This is a series of shapes based on Living Systems Theory by James G Miller. It
is a comprehensive set of subsystems that can document any living or nonliving
system. Due to the property of "shred-out" each subsystem can then be analyzed
in the same way, and utilize the same subsystems.

It is possible to document systems like web servers in LST, but the majority of
this documentation will be as useful as the amount of detail included. Storing
variables in each shape is the next intended feature.
