Well looking at this again, it seems using "tell *all*" is a bad wording
All of the "tell" tiles are "tell all" tiles.  Perhaps it would be better
to have two versions "tell" tiles (for connectors and successors) which
tell the 1st level and "tell all" which go all the way down/up the chain.
And also get rid of the extraneous "all" in the other tell commands.

   1.    "tell all siblings" ==> "tell siblings"
   2.    "tell all embedded objects" ==> "tell embedded objects"
   3.    "tell all incoming connections" ==> "tell incoming connections"
   and "tell all incoming connections"

Of course the problem with #3 and its like is that it could break older
projects which would not want to do.  You might be able to determine which
version it was saved in and deal with that I don't know.

The above said as Karl demonstrated with his project it is possible to
build that functionality by scripting the nodes properly.
