Request: Access deeply nested components' properties from the parent

A lot of us use nested components, and the new property feature is nice. But if you nest Component A inside of B, itself nested inside of C, nested inside of D, you cannot easily access properties from A when D is selected.

When an instance of D is selected, the UI could look like tabs that allow you to switch between nested components’ properties, or dropdowns below D’s properties.

Totally agree!
I’d like to convert my library of deeply nested symbols from Sketch to Figma but at the moment the lack of nested overrides is a show stopper for me.
Variants are a nice idea but as soon as the dimensionality goes above 2d it becomes quite hard maintain if not using nested components.
