Hard tracks are irreconcilable with the magnetic timeline and connected clips. There's no point in having tracks where clips need to have freedom of movement to overlap when conflicts arise- if you did this with tracks, they'd have to structural/informational meaning.

A Role is a collection of clips that you choose to group together. Right now, they're grouped by metadata only- but if that info was applied to the Project timeline, it would allow for organization very much like Stacked Tracks. A Role would be a "track" made up of as many lanes as needed for the overlapping elements. If you need more granular control than DIALOGUE, then create sub-Roles for DIALOGUE-JOE and DIALOGUE-MARY. The important thing here is that these elements continue to be free to maintain their clip connections throughout editing.
