It would be nice to have the ability to create a circuit with arbitrary named Inputs/Outputs. You could then save this circuit as a component to be imported. This would allow the design of arbitrarily-complex circuits, such as 32-bit adders, to be implemented in larger designs without making the designs impossible to maintain.

    Some of this functionality is available now. Create a circuit, place External Connection components from the Connections component category, rename them as you wish, then select the circuit, right click on the selection, and from the menu, choose Create Subcircuit. This way a new component will be created, with the given name.

    The only issue is related to managing the user created subcircuits.
