So you mean smarter loading routines? Actually there is no way to "heal" a file, other applications just ignore damaged chunks and thus sometimes can recover things. In this case dumbness is an advantage. I think it would be impossible to recover all the advanced features, though. Since weightmaps and endomorphs only store values that already refer to the base geometry, you are out of luck if your base geometry is damaged seriously.

Still, it would be nice to be able to pick which parts of a model get loaded - geometry, weightmaps, layers, endomorphs...

simply agree to this request.
not just for healing, but simply to keep objects as small as possible
also a more sophisticated scene loader would be a good idea.
