[Chris Kenny] "For instance, the connection-based model implies one thing about what to do in the case of clip collisions (overlap clips, which is displayed by showing them layered in vertical space), while the track-based model implies another behavior (overwrite, because the new clip is explicitly being placed into the same 'slot' occupied by the old one)."

The behavior could be the same with a tracked model as it is with the trackless model -- promote clips to other tracks to avoid collision. It would then be up to the editor to manually resolve the proper track assignments.

Having direct control of track assignment does make some sense when your NLE is also a compositor.
