Allow virtual connections between pipes

In some cases, it is relatively difficult to create a family for all the existing situations in real life. For example, a plumbing manhole. The latter can have from 2 to 4 (or even more) connections with, for each, different heights and slopes. The realization of such a family quickly becomes rather difficult to make and relatively unstable to modifications within a project.
The possibility of having virtual connections would solve many problems of this kind.

For Electrical Systems, Revit lets you create Surface Conduit Connector. It lets you to place a conduit in any place of a geometry face without losing the connection. I think there are related with idea you're suggesting.

I agree with you, at least for Sanitary Systems Revit should let you create "Surface Pipe Connectors". This will allow us to model more closely to reality, while modeling in a simpler way.
