Cable parent/children

hen you tag a wire as a Cable Parent, it seems
that you are really just assigning a conductor
to a wire, and given the opportunity to tag
the rest of the wires in that cable. The initial
"Parent" tag doesn't seem to be essentially
different from the children. Is there a way to
mark a "wire" as the cable, which would contain
all the conductors, and then assign individual
wires as its children, with associated wire colors?
I don't mean fan in/out source/dest marking. I
want to show the cable coming out of a connector
without at that point showing the individual wires.
I want to record the route of the cable in places
where it's not broken out, and then fan it out,
and possible break it into seperate cables.
