Make it possible that layer comps inside of smart objects can be accessible in parent file as maybe a part of layer setup

For a web designer it would be ultimately helpful if i can make a smart-object for example a product item which is duplicated X times to interpret a product list in the e-shop design.
But the same way it can be a button or anything else what can have more states.

This smart object will be used X times in the design, but i need to show different states of it.
Like selected, Zoomed detail view on hover.. and any other states.

This i would like to have prepared inside of the Smart object as a Layer Comps.
And i would like to set in parent PSD which state should be used on which instance of it.

Imagine then all the consequences.
To define states of each object from which webpage is build up and one day maybe also export it as a files.

So in other words:

Make it possible that layer comps inside of smart objects can be accessible in parent file as maybe a part of layer setup.

currently to achieve this, i can only make new smart object via copy, and change layer comp and delete the old one. But after i present 3 or more objects like this. and want to change a font color.. i need to modify 3 of them.
