Pretty straightforward, but it seems this isn't possible. I'd love to be able to link a Drawing and Layout ID to an element. Specifically, in my Door/Window Schedule, I prefer to show where head/jamb/sill/threshold details show up in the drawing set. If this was available, we could link in a specific drawing to the properties of each window/door.

Any thoughts?

Properties are element-specific so only data about elements can be stored in them, and they are not aware of Properties or parameters of other elements, and they are not aware of the environment either.
So no, it is not possible to do.
You can make a wish for this feature, we can vote on it and if it gets enough support, we can submit it to GRAPHISOFT for consideration.
