Feel free to add a Bugzilla enhancement request for the feature.
Even better, add a patch as well!

However, I suspect this may be quite difficult to do in general whilst
maintaining upward compatibility.
The JMX files are plain text (XML) and the elements don't have unique ids.
And how should JMeter handle deleted elements?
But there may be some limited support that could be added.

If anyone has ideas as to how to implement this, it would be best to
discuss this on the JMeter dev list rather than here or on any
Bugzilla issue.
