I don't know how feasible this would be to implement but what I would like to see is the ability to "nest" art brushes. To explain, what I'd like to be able to do is make one art brush with say, a "Stretch Between Guides" setting that when used unexpanded to make part of another brush, still retains the "Stretch Between Guides" for that element or to be able to set a colorization method for that brush and have it override the colorization method chosen for the brush it is incorporated into or the ability to use one brush as part of an element in another brush and then after modifying the original brush, get a dialog similar to what you have if you go to edit a brush after you've used it where you have the option to apply that change to the existing artwork (another words, to modify the new art brush) or to expand the element in the brush and break the link or nesting...
I'm not sure if I'm being entirely clear with this but it seems like if there were a way to do this similar to the way symbols or some live effects work, it would open up a huge number of possibilities with the brush tool.
I'm sure this probably falls in the "easier said than done" category but with a preference to allow or disallow this feature with individual brushes, it seems like it could be done without risk of breaking older files or workflows.

The replay answer
Take a pencil and paper and make a drawing of what it should do.
What you get is a bunch of pages that display what you describe. Then draw lines.
A link from one image on *the top page* to *a page that shows three individual projects*.
Then a link from one image on *that page that shows three individual projects* to a *the individual project page*.
The sub-pages should have their page hidden from the menu, but still have the main page visible in the menu.
Always make sure your visitor can get back to the top page.
