Hi Neil -
Mr. Doom and Gloom here.
you write -
"Hopefully the yet to be announced MPro of the future can fix these issues."

I will faint if that happens. No manufacturer (AJA, Blackmagic) is going to be excited to write NEW drivers for free for eight year old hardware. And even if that happened, with the release of macOS 10.13 High Sierra and SIP (System Integrity Protection) it's a nightmare to install drivers for even current hardware like ATTO, Promise, Sonnet, etc. Apple is becoming more and more uncooperative with third party manufacturers (think NVidia) - why ? I don't know - probably money. So at this moment, if you think the "new" non existant Mac Pro will be what "we all dream of" - a new computer from Apple that can run any third party hardware that we desire - well, I think that is a big pipe dream as of 2018. Not that the computer won't ultimately come out - but a dream that you will be able to install legacy hardware or anything else that your company desires to put into this new Mac.
