Photoshop: Asset Styles Panel (assets of grouped layers each with unique styles)

In addition to layer styles I think an asset library would be useful. For example, a button is made up from possibly from 3 layers. A background shape with layer style. A font layer above. And an Icon layer. These can be grouped or linked to easily duplicate. But it would be good if these three layers could be saved into an 'assets' panel a bit like a layer style, so I can open a new document, load a particular client's asset library and drag a single asset that is the combination of those three layers. Instant button with each later correctly styled.

This asset style would apply the correct style to each layer individually and also have 'states'. That way if the developer needed to see the mouse-over version, I could select the 'asset' (group of layers) and hit an alternate 'asset-style' from the asset panel which would restyle the layers correctly from my asset library to show their mouse-over state.

Using hidden folders works fine, but the above would be faster when learned.
