My menu:

  - Level1.1

So maybe I have wrong approach, because I want to display on my site in 
three different places three levels of menu presented above,
so let's say in the place A I want to have subpages of Level1, in the 
place B subpages of Level2 and in the place C subpages of Level3.

How to do this without special = directory or special = list.
I don't want it to be dependent from actual position in rootline.

Maybe you have some solution for this?
