Design elements within Databases that inherit design, and design elements that inherit from other databases, should not physically exist in the inherited database, and instead be referenced by some kind of internal Domino pointer.  This is made more practical today by using DB2 as a backend, where 'schemas' can be referenced (maybe??).
This would be a huge disk-space saving for mail databases for example, and reliable centralisation of shared code is possible.

No need; it's already done...
Where an entire database inherits from a single template, we've been able to do this since Notes 6.0 with single-copy templates.
I've never personally used this feature, and I don't know whether it works for individual design elements inheriting from separate templates.

Yet it's needed to modify the inherited design elements sometimes.
