Parenchyma - the Opposite of Scaffolding?

According to Wiktionary Parencyhma means:
  1. the functional part of an organ, as opposed to supporting tissue
  2. the tissue making up most of the non-woody parts of a plant
It kind of means the opposite of "scaffolding" - a word I use a lot in creative contexts to describe the ideas you throw away in order to get to the ideas you keep. Parenchyma could perhaps be regarded as the statue lurking inside the proverbial block of stone?
