Are revolved solid features capable of being library features?

I am trying to create a library feature that is a gasketed pipe bell (my company makes municipal water pipe).   It would be really fantastic if we could model the pipe bell geometry once and then simply add it as a library feature to the HUNDREDS of pipe and fabricated fitting models that we make.    I have no issue importing a single copy of the library feature (revolved solid), but as soon as I try importing a second (for example modeling a fabricated tee or elbow fitting) at a different orientation, I always get the "failure" due to "references".   Is this possible to do, and if so, how should my library feature be modeled (and referenced) to allow it?
