Override component nesting

:wave:t3:Hi there! I’m not sure if anyone else would think this is useful but I’d love a feature where components put into a group or frame could override the nesting in the assets panel.

Grouping components for maintainer use only

Currently in the library I’m working with I’d love to move components into a group so they can be separated from view by default.

I wanted to call this a Maintainers section but since Figma nests components based on their location in the page (at root level or nested in a group/frame) that threw off my idea.

Unfortunately this groups components as well, would want to override if possible

Ideally components would still list normally in the Assets panel despite being in a group.

If group nesting could be overridden then components could still look like normal
