Is it possible to create a component in one document (making it the master), copy and paste it into a new document, and turn it into a master component in that new document?
Right now, it appears my only option is to have it linked (via copy + paste), unlink it and then turn it into a new component which wipes out any states I had created (very frustrating)
I believe this would be a highly valuable feature.

Found a work around spurred by this thread
Delete the component in the source document. Click "Update" in the Assets panel on the destination (new document) and select "Make Local Copy"
Make Local Copy absolutely should be available even if the component is currently linked.
Thank you for reaching out and sharing your feedback. It's nice to hear you're able to work with the workaround solution.

Seems like there is now a solution for this problem. If you locate the linked component inside resources panel now you have the option to apply local changes to the component. Im sorry for the screenshot in italian
