After having thought about it for a few hours, this is a good idea, but I'm still trying to figure out how to implement it. One of the most important parts of the updater is that current addon authors have to do nothing to get it to work with it. The question becomes how does the updater distinguish between an "optional" component and a "required" component.
Or I could just leave that to the user.
I'd like to get this implemented, but for now it can't be the top of my priorities. But I'll keep this one open and in mind, because it is definitely something that I'd like to see.
Thanks for the suggestion,

As far as implementation, I was thinking something like another popup when they install the mod if there are multiple top-level folders in the archive. "This AddOn appears to have multiple modules. Select the modules you would like to update." Then display a list of the items with checkboxes.
I suppose you could even store the selections in your .wid file so the user only has to select the information once unless they decide to change it later.
Again, I'd like to say great work so far. I've been waiting quite some time for a utility like this that actually keeps security in mind.
