Exactly, we need organization, but not "tracks" as other NLEs have them. Track information is just another form of metadata. What we need is for Role info to be represented in the timeline. Tracks are a means to an end, and not an end unto themselves.

The parallel I keep coming back to is Events. The static organizational model from other NLEs are Bins. You make a bin, you put something in a bin. FCPX's keywording goes at the same problem from a completely different direction- it's unquestionably a more fluid solution, but with the same result.

Once Apple leverages the Role data for clips in the timeline, it will "look" very familiar, but the underpinnings will be [like Events] very different.
