First of all, the new Linked Smart Objects feature in Photoshop CC (14.2) is just so cool 🙂
Here my suggestions to enhance Smart Objects: • Add Import Options to choose which Layer(s) or Layer Comp you want to show in this "instance". • This instance need to be like a placed PSD inside InDesign, I mean independent to other instances of the same placed PSD. • Right+Click on the SO layer to edit the options after the importation. • Regarding Illustrator SO, add the option to select one specific Artboard like in InDesign.

Ah, yes, you are right. The Layer Comp selection of a Smart Object cannot currently be saved as a properties of the Layer Comp in the master doc. We are still looking in to that capability. Sorry for the confusion.
