Well it should
sound a lot
like simply more inserts. I'm first and foremost an advocate of unlimited inserts. I wouldn't be satisfied with a half-baked solution, but I'm interested to explore less obvious ideas if and only if
there's a good possibility they can be implemented in a way that's as good as, if not better than, simply adding more inserts.

They might ask the question, "why are there two sets of inserts in the console?" It might add, ironically, more complexity than it aims to take away. E.g., a pre/post inserts button.
This is a comment on a purely hypothetical implementation. My question is, if the implementation was to your liking, would you be happy with that?

Well, not really. The question is, with an implementation that satisfies all of your needs, could an advanced native chainer be a good alternative to additional inserts? I'll tell you this much... if they simply extended it to 16 inserts I'd be spitting fire.
And I'm not against seeing arrive first... mostly, because all hope that Steinberg cares about this issue is lost anyway
Why? Steinberg have acknowledged the feature request and have specifically said they're not ignoring any suggestions.
