Robin and Scott, Herb's personal experience has no bearing on whether his argument is right or wrong. If his argument is wrong, either his assumptions or his logic must be wrong, so let's look at the argument rather than the man making it.

If I may paraphrase the argument (presented without value judgement):

1. A tradeoff between systems exists their sets of benefits and liabilities do not overlap.

2. Tracked NLEs provide a mechanism for the benefit of at-a-glance timeline legibility (via alignment).

3. FCPX is a not tracked NLE, and its current competitors are.

4. Requests from numerous full-time FCPX users for color-coding indicate a need for more at-a-glance timeline legibility.

5. Therefore, FCPX has a need for more at-a-glance timeline legibility -- something its competitors already have.

6. Therefore, this imbalance in benefits represents a tradeoff.

If you disagree with the argument, let's discuss where either the assumptions or the logic fails.
