I don't see it so catastrophic. In certain cases it is better to see an 
entire structure as a tree instead of a lot of "see definition x". In my 
experience with Tiles, what I did very frequently is a base definition 
and a lot of extended definitions, one for each page. Probably nested (I 
called them "inline" but probably "nested" is a better term) definition 
in these cases are clearer.

Isn't there yet? Do you mean:

<put name="attributeName" value="some.definition" type="definition" />

I don't think it is what you mean, because this is already there. Can 
you clarify what you mean with an example?
