I do the same with 'noweb' feature.

How this could be solved by your approach by tangling to several files? They
will be identical!

Could you explain this a bit more? How you will see that (assuming you have
exported Org to HTML) this goes into different files? Again, if you tangle to
several files they content will be the same! Then why you need different

IMHO, yes, this is a hack and the "standard" way. I would suggest to read
again Org manual concerning "Literate programming".

How that? You will tangle source block to several files, they content will be
identical! Or you suggesting to add some syntax for source block indicating to
which file to tangle that code snippet?

I would recommend you to describe your needs and how you do things right now.
