You're being facetious, of course, but I think my analogy between Keywords-Events, and Roles-Timeline is completely apt.

If you have a piece of audio that you've tagged with the Role "SFX", wouldn't it be great to know that when you drop that into your timeline, it's automatically deposited into the right "track" or Lane as I think they're referred to in X. That SFX Lane isn't restricted to just one "track" of audio, but is as deep as the number of overlapping elements it contains. All those individual elements are connected to specific visual moments, but are free to move (stack or unstack) depending on what you're doing with the picture edit.

You're joke about eliminating timelines implies you think that Tracks as they exist are essential. And I'm proposing they're not. A way to visually organize audio elements IS essential. That's two completely different things.
