It will be interesting to see if a FCPX 10.1 bring with it any "regressionary" changes.

When you're trying to define a new way to edit like this, you may not be able to see how all roads end. And maybe some of the ideas they've proposed don't work out.

It's impossible to know if the dev team ever originally planned to put in an Event Viewer (preview window), or if it was a concession to user demand. Personally I hardly use it.

For instance I think there's a pretty good case to be made for recombining the Project/Event structure into a single file. While the concept has some potential advantages (separating media from "cuts") for multi-user situations- there may be more advantages to a combined structure where there's a better free-flow of metadata between projects and events, since metadata is unquestionably FCPX's strong points.
