May I present a little statistics I did a week ago? Thanks. ;)

In Pd it is possible to build your own modules, that you then can use
inside your patch. You also can of course code modules. I recently
counted how many modules I have - downloaded or self-created. I have
4781 uniquely named pd-files on my disk, every one of which I could
use as an object.  

When designing a modular system, it might become important to be able
to handle such enormous amounts of possible objects. 

Regarding your design: It reminds me of Numerology, which is a cool
sequencer that makes routing the way you suggested, with drop-down
boxes. But Numerology just has a very small amount of possible
"objects": it's own tracks, AFAIK.
