I hesitate to intervene in such an intense discussion, but I may have an 
idea of a compromise that might be acceptable to the different points of 

The problem of consistency and coherence concerns only the "Cut and 
paste editing mode".


Double-clicking could result in only one clip being selected (as in the 
"Drag and Drop editing mode") but by the highlight (rather than the red 
outline) of this single clip.

Ctrl key would allow, by the double clip, the highlight of the whole 
area on all the associated tracks.

This would maintain a constant behaviour in the selection process, while 
not changing the nature of the "Cut and paste editing mode", but would 
add the possibility of quick selection of a single clip.
