We are working on supporting the copy() function in outputs – combined with the reference() function should help with these scenarios. We will email you once it is completed. Feel free to reach out if you have any additional feedback.

This already is available. At least, I'm able to reference my linked templates locally. Or, more accurately, I utilize the _artifactslocation variable to utilize a storage acct that only I have access to to host the templates while I deploy.
Work on this request has commenced. We will send an update once it is completed.Michael commented
Agreeing with this as well. I can take my deployment model from 9 nested templates to 3 if this were implemented.
