Not exactly. A modified version is a remix. I'm more or less
comfortable with the remix as they are. I do have 1 issue with the but
the 'set' feature would solve it.
My issue is that currently
If X and Y are both remixes of Z.
X is not a remix Y.
Nor is Y a remix of X
Which is most often fine but not always desirable. For example My
gold medal (Z) has 2 remixes a Silver medal(X) and a bronze medal (Y)
. Both which are not remixes of each other. But really should be.
If I could create a set instead of a remix this would not be and issue.
The 'set' feat i imagine is a bit restrictive in the sense that they
would be restricted to the artist. It would be a set as in the way
that the artist himself created the work as a set.
A 'user set' on the other hand could be a 'collection'. I like bacon,
so i could create a bacon collection of all bacon related clip art.
So Artist can make sets of their art to present to users and users can
make collections for their own use.

A related clipart section is good too but that is really the same as
search by tags.
