Yes.  Every diagram has an associated 'query function', which
associates a monoidal value to every point.  By default it just
returns True/False indicating whether the given point is in the
interior of any shape, but you can use any monoid you like.  I believe
John Lato has been using this in conjunction with the support for
rendering directly to a gtk widget to develop some sort of interactive
graphical application (I don't know many details).
