How can I display multiple computed subforms with a form in Notes?

I want to display multiple computed subforms with a form. The subforms will be displayed based on customer selection for request types. How do I do this with Lotus Notes? So far, it looks like only the last computed subform is being displayed.
Say you have at most seven subforms you might want to include, then you have to have seven separate "computed subform" inclusions on your form. If you wanted to display only three of them, then the first three formulas would calculate the names of those three, and the other four would have to return "".

Sorry, I know you were hoping that you would somehow be able to write a single subform formula that returned a multiple-valued result and all the ones your formula named would be magically included. But it just doesn't work that way.
