Repeated interactions are not supported

Repeated interactions are not supported, e.g.

Component:Tab (Default/Selected)

Variants interactions 1 : Tap (Default) - Change to - Tab (Selected)
Variants interactions 2 : Tap - Scroll to - Module

Now the problem is both of these two interactions are mutually exclusive.


The solution to them, might be to treat prototype interactions as any other variant override. It propagate from the component to its instances and can be overridden in the instance. This is much more flexible and less confusing.

It seems that they are trying to compartmentalize the component set element, but it feels arbitrary to limit components to only propagate “change to” actions and disallow overrides.
