Edge grouping treats closed groups as nodes and groups its edges

0 votes
I use groups extensively to allow multiple levels of detail in one diagram by closing the "uninteresting" groups for that audience while opening up others and vice versa.

Unfortumately if a closed group has numerous nodes with edges connecting to nodes outside the closed group, each edge is drawn independently.

Can a closed group treat all the incoming and outgoing edges like a node would for edge grouping? This would ease diagram maintenance for multiple audiences significantly.

Edge labels can be a hurdle here. Edges with distinct labels would still be separate if one or both nodes are visible. Edges that originate from and end  in nodes that both reside in a closed group would have their labels hidden and are free to be grouped together.
