Hi Reinhart,
it is like radio Erivan - possible, but...
See context related.

No, not in this manner.

IzPack is current not able to support real maintenace (like MSI
it does). Be carefully with Updates.
The sequence of the panels is the same as in the installation
definition file (install.xml or what ever). It is not possible
to declare a tree ( what you need, I think).
But if you create custom panels, you can create a pseudo tree
with skipping not needed panels in panelActivate.
I do it at more than one place.
But many people do not like to create custom panels because
it needs some knowledge of the internals of IzPack and good 
knowledge of java.
