Er, it seems that we're already doing that

Not exactly that. This example illustrates my idea:

 d'16 \< d'' d''\! d'' \> d''
 d''\! c\< c'' c''\!

first and second hairpins are 'related' (in my opinion at least

Unfortunately, lilypond doesn't care about your opinion. You end a hairpin, and then at some later point in time start a new one. Lilypond is just a dumb program, it doesn't care if it's only a 16th note later or 200 measures later, one is ended before the next is begun, therefore, they are no longer related. If your input were, for example:
 d'16 \< d'' d''d'' \> d''
 d''c\< c'' c''\!

Then they would be related, and lilypond places them at the same vertical height. 

Regardless, what about using the snippet already linked? Does that come close to what you are looking for?
