Is it possible to combine/merge Layer States or XREF's?

I work for the local school district and a current drawing set i'm working on has anywhere between 1 and 8 XREF's each. The way our drawing system was created was to have one drawing with several different layer states. I was wondering whether it is possible to combine layer states so that I can change each of the XREF's layer states at one time, rather than indiviually. Please let me know if anyone knows whether or not this is achieveable. Thank you.

Update: Problem solved, I believe. It turns out that as long as I have the correct layers turned on within the layer state, the Xref will follow over with it on the same layer state. An obvious solution that i'm mad I didn't think of sooner.

There is nothing within the program to do this: there might be a programming option, ask in the Customization Discussion area:
