Allow Symbols to be Excluded from Asset Switching
Excluding certain symbols from asset switching would allow displays to be authored with symbols that are "locked" -- meaning they will show the same data regardless of display asset context. This would allow displays to be used for drill-in navigation, while maintaining some top-level context data. It would also allow navigation buttons to be "locked" so that the button's target asset context will never be changed.

This is good.
I like the way that Tibco Spotfire manages this (for drilldown) by different coloured markings.
You would subset your different symbols on you display by marking colour (only visible in config).
A particular example symbol may set one colour marking, say blue, and respond to green.
A different symbol or set of symbols would set the green marking for the first symbol to respond to.
If a symbol had its marking removed, it would not respond, as per James's idea.
