[Joseph Owens] "assigning arbitrary hierarchies (roles?) that the foreground editor at the user interface neither cared for, nor worried about."

Well, FWIW, assigning Roles is the job of the editor, and they are, to me, way more helpful than tracks... except visually for now. You can also quite easily put clips where you want them in the timeline. Methods for more finely manipulating the visual layout in the timeline need some work though.

[Joseph Owens] "You really only have to unpack an X project in Resolve, which tries to unstack all the decisions that are laying latent to realize just how pell-mell the behind-the-scenes structure is being constructed."

In my experience, video clips stack just the same in X as they do in anything else. And you really only need to open an audio sequence exported using x2Pro to see how nicely Roles can split out and organize clips for a tracked NLE.

[Joseph Owens] "but then again they are building these products for people who are notoriously persistent in their deliberate ignore-ance of accompanying literature."

Really? Interesting.
