At the risk of over-complicating the cut-outs, I wonder if there would be benefit to making vectors with crossed lines, in addition to the diagonal lines, to differentiate x-components for y-components. Visually I can see the current diagonally striped vectors matching y and a new cross striped vector matching x.
