For example, take the following question Draw a picture where some parts are tablesDraw a picture where some parts are tables. It can be broken down into various parts. The tables on the left hand side could be structured in TikZ as split rectangles. The table in the center could import a tabular environment into the picture for which there is already a good answergood answer though I'd like to see a way of doing it as a TikZ matrix or a two-way split rectangle(??). The right hand side could just be viewed as drawing connectors between the node: a rather rudimentary level sort of thing to do in TikZ or pstricks, but I don't think we have anything illustrating plainly how to do this except buried in other questions and therefore not readily searchable.

My suggestion is that a solution be posted for each of these aspects of the picture. While we do have some questions about working with split nodes, we don't really have a question which is "how do I draw a split node?" So, we in-the-know could post such a question (perhaps as a community wiki). Then we could answer our own question illustrating the technique (again perhaps as a community wiki). But then this would also allow others to come in and showcase how to do the similar technique in pstricks of Metapost. Then we could go back to the OP's question and in the comments (or in a solution) link to the new posting or show how to integrate the various ideas. In fact, my own question about Setting a length with a key to a TikZ nodeSetting a length with a key to a TikZ node came up in an initial foray into answering the question about drawing the diagram mentioned at the start of the previous paragraph (I haven't posted anything yet about this because I just haven't had that sort of procrastination time available). In this manner we would gradually build up respositories of techniques. (Right now I can recall seeing many cool things done with TikZ, but then the question is how do I find it 9 months later and when I finally have a project where the cool thing would be useful. Afterall, the original question could have been about something rather tangential to whatever coolness might have been there.)

Similarly, here on TeX-SX, many of the easy questions have been asked and answered. That's not to say such easy questions are still not laying around waiting to be asked. But, for the interested learnedlearner of LaTeX (and family), most questions they might come up with have likely already be posted and answered. And thanks to some of the giants on this site, we have some very thorough and elucidating answers (or comments).
