[Tony Corapi] "So if if you have 2 connected clips A and B, if you want to extend the end point of clip A, clip B jumps up vertically in exact opposite direction I want it to go because now I have to move it right or edit the in point of B back to see the new end point of A."

This is exactly a case for secondary storylines.

You can even j/l cut audio just like the primary, or use trim modes just like the primary.

Hold g, kiss the edge of one connected clip to the edge of the another connected clip, and a secondary is created instantly, select the trim point with mouse, use bracket and forward slash to select the side you'd like to move, and trim using the comma and period, or skim and shift-x to extend, etc.

It is true, the FCPX needs better navigation between the "levels" when not using the mouse. Smoke does this remarkably well.
