subpatches share the 'locality' of the containing patcher, as far as $0 goes, but it soudns like youre looking for the ability to 'subclass' an abstraction and just change a few things? or perhaps real local-variables or symbols without makefilename+$0 hacks, or even the ability to pass distinct args to a subpatch like you can with an abstraction? keep waiting, or add it yourself..i think some work on these things, along with lists-within-lists and threads, pd could become the 'python or ruby' of dataflow langages..but it hasnt happened yet.
