As a replacement to often cryptic and undecipherable clipping groups  . A way to simplify layer stack and ability to get a dynamic live masks from a separate stack of layers .    Those layers could be put somewhere in the bottom and just marked as a certain layer comp. 

 

It would be working  same as  linked smart object.     The only difference is that the subject would be linked to the same documents group of layers and thus  working live.  Without necessity to open and edit outside files to make changes.

Sorry, I don't understand what exactly you are trying to achieve or what dynamic masks have to do with layer comps in your explanation.

 

Maybe it would be better to show an example screenshot of what it takes now to achieve something and a mock up layer stack showing how your idea would achieve the same but in a simplified way.

Sort of linked smart object that links to the same document group of layers and thus  working live.  Without necessety to open and edit  other files.

 

 

Your "sentences" are missing subjects and verbs, which makes me wonder if English is not your native language. You can write in your native language if that's easier for you, and we can click the "Translate" button.

I added a psd file and a screen of what I mean .   A dynamic mask  or just layer  would be a rasterisation of chosen layer comp.    I believe it's what happens when you  select a layercomp within a smart object to show.

 

So my idea is to rasterize  same way a layercomp in current document .
