Display state driven BOM's

Are we going to have BOM's that we can drive off of display states? For example if we have a piece of equipment with hydraulics system, electronics and of course the steel and other metals for the construction, it would be great to set display states for each of these systems for drawings, design, assembly, and Purchasing/Inventory! 

Also could the display states be a drop down or something kind of like configurations?

    @Josiah_Harthcock this sounds much more like what would be addressed by assembly configurations when they ship.  Display states will not be locked to configs.  Once you have assembly configs and can control what is active or not it will directly control the bom.
