Ptolemy now includes a way to highlight errors.  I'm not
sure if this change is present in Kepler or not.  The highlight
facility is what would be used to indicate the target actor.

In principle, it is possible to open up a model as a URL and
have the correct layer show up.  For example, if I have model
Foo that has an inner composite actor called Bar and I want to
see the actor Baz, then currently, opening
Foo.xml#Bar should bring up a graph editor for Bar.

Perhaps we should extend this so that
would bring up a graph editor for Bar and highlight Baz.

The above is just an idea, not a requirement.
One of the Ptolemy Project sponsors is interested in something 

"Search for where parameters are being used"
is very short, it says:

 It would be nice if we could show were a parameter is being used
 in a model.  This ties in to a search mechanism.
