Good analogy. If I understand you correctly, single sourcing is much like developing subroutines except the subroutine that is called from the main program block is a chunk of text or an image.

The difference between single sourcing and current practice is similar
to that between structured and straight-line code in a software
program. In the old days, programs used straight-line coding in that
everything that had to be done had its own unique lines of code. Wheb
structured programming was introduced, common lines of code could be
written once and then could be referred to by any part of a program
that needed them.
