[Charlie Austin] "Get Event Manager. It addresses every concern you just expressed. Seriously. Tick the boxes for the event and it's associated project folder, press a button, done. Of course you could argue that that should be built into or bundled with X. I agree."

agreed - but there are a lot of serious perception issues with the software - primary among them being that it is designed out of the guts of single operator persistent noodling software like iphoto/aperture. Software that greets you with all the things you have ever done. In its basic nature, it's inarguable that FCPX looks to do this. It loads all events by default. No one ever asks why iphoto or itunes load all photo collections or playlists by default. And no one has ever tried to sell itunes playlistX manager.

All the approaches you suggest - like hodgett's many diligently worked fixes to the software io and management, function - but apple need, at a minimum, to begin make a clear case for its usability in professional scenarios - after stealing event manager, apple, somewhere on their website, need to begin to make Germanically clear workflow arguments. Adobe are about to play a massive card with anywhere - and avid are a perilously small company, leaking money.

It entirely depends on how much Apple care: as to how much they are willing to reset themselves to the market, given that, in monthly wage terms, the market we represent doesn't buy them a packet of gum. promo producer/editor.grading/motion graphics
