IW does do that.

I take it that this is akin to editable transclusioons. If so, IW doesn’t have that. You can move, split, join, copy as much as you want, but it’s not the same as editable transclusions.  I know many people structure workflows around these, but they’re something I use only occasionally even when they are available.

It’s not a must have feature in writing for me. Two main reasons:
1. I prefer to writie in a single document with headings and folding. I would like better outline features to be more widespread, but can work with things as they are now. IW’s outline isn’t great (only has go to a heading, not move headings around; I assume that both it and Ulysses follow the same credo as Scrivener in making a mosaic out of small chunks - which means that none of these programs suit me ideally.
2. By the time I reach the stage, I’m into first review/edit mode. That I prefer to do in docx with colour.
