To take the linked smart objects a bit further and make it easier to web designers to manage assets it would be really useful if we could have a group folder act in the same way as linked smart objects do now. We could have a single file where we could design all of our recurring assets and just drag the folders in to our designs and then use the master file to update these assets when needed. Now I'm doing this using linked objects and image asset generator to generate and update png files but the this way I cannot use layer comps to get different states for these assets.

It sounds like you don't really understand how smart objects work, or why the limitations are required to make them efficient.
