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

Thanks!  It's scheduled to be examined for inclusion for version 0.97.

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.) 

Unfortunately not;  the UML classes would very much like something like
that, too.  The PROP_LIST property is there to handle it, but nobody has
managed to fix up a usable implementation.

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

There are two ways to increase the attention:  Give it some attention
yourself (i.e. implement it, or give a more concrete suggestion for
implementation), or give a monetary reward to have somebody implement
it.  I am awash in things that are very important to implement, and will
take them in my order of priority in my very limited free time, but
patches are always very welcome.  Sorry to be so brutal about it, but I
don't want to promise an implementation that I don't know that I'll have
time for.

Would an ext_attribute work for the shapes (assuming somebody adds the
appropriate part to its output for properties named "link")?
