It would be nice to have a copy of the layer that is dynamically updated. Rotation, scaling, and effects can be managed separately, but image content is locked and depends on the original.

Photoshop uses smart layeres, works from external files, but no such depths are required, just respond quickly in a document.

A particularly important feature is that there are many sub-units in the composition and something needs to be modified.

This is definitely a very useful feature, especially for UI design, but quite a significant one in terms of development. If we do ever add it, it would be more in the long-term.
