Not argueing the need, trying to give you something you might do until such time the wish would be implented (if done at all)
I do think it will be very complex due to building materials and how they include a fill and a surface. So copying any complex profile / composite potentially means adding the fill and surface along with the complex profile / composite to your attributes. Line types too, but I don't think they are customised that much.
I've also solved some of these issues by making our default template have more attributes that we typically use in projects, so more unity among projects where we can safely copy things around.
If you are comparing things, maybe hotlink both models to a new file, to keep your master file clean?
Again, just offering work-arounds that might work in the meantime.
