No, unfortunately you can't.

Z39.50 element set names are literal strings, so 'zebra::index' is a 
very different beast than 'zebra::index::title'.

The Z39.50 protocol does not know about special Zebra element set name 
relationships, and therefore the generic YAZ libraries don't either.

As it is, you have to define all your
'zebra::index::this'
'zebra::index::that'

individually.
