Sub-Assemblies of a DT driven Assembly

With a great deal of credit to M.G. Martinez, and his valuable insights in this forum, I have sucessfully created a parametric assembly, including sub-assemblies, driven by a single design table and some "master sketches" in the assembly.

One question I have, is whether there is any way to keep the sub-assemblies defined when they are opened alone. If I open only one of the subs, the parts are floating around somewhat randomly. I cannot add much in the way of mates without causing conflicts in the main assembly, as the assembly sketches drive the size and locations of many components. Does anyone have a solution for this?

I would like to be able to post my assembly, since I know several here have been looking for examples of driving assemblies and sub-assemblies, but unfortunately this product is still in development, so I cannot put it in a public forum like this at this time.
