No doubt. I do doubt I would use them.

Because I can't possibly see why you would want this in a single component.
One is for statistics, the other for diagrams. Thus, I would make 
this 2 separate components. About the only intersection they have 
is that they draw on a canvas.

That is, of course, assuming you'd implement it in a single component.
