There is a fundamental trade-off between, on the one hand, the complexity of the diagram (and consequently of the interface required to produce it), and the clarity of that diagram (and simplicity of the interface). Of course, greater complexity allows greater flexibility, expressiveness and generality. For the most part the designers of these systems have selected a particular point of trade-off between expressiveness and simplicity, determined in large part by the intended use and users. One potential extension to these systems of diagramming which is particularly liable to reduce clarity is the ability to handle dialogue.
