I wanted to ignore this email because I would agree, that if it would 
work for the original author, then it fits his or her needs. Today I am 
editing again and from usability perspective try this one;

You have 4 tracks, VAAA. Add some media so you are sure you can see what 
happens. In front of it you create 30s of silence.

Go to a new asset. View it. Set in-out points, and copy (not to clip).

Now go to the front of the timeline and paste.

Notice that VAA is moving, but the last audio track does not, hence VAAA 
directly becomes out of sync. This also happens when you would drag and 
'snap' a clip to the beginning of the time line. But it does not when 
you drag a clip in between on silence space.

To me the above behavior shows:
  1. I am either unaware of the option not to have the assets on the 
timeline move (see subject on the email)
  2. Or we must agree that this moving behavior for a NON-linear editor 
is far from be desired. I would even say, like the labels locking 
moving, we must have an option that would always just overwrites.

It is open source, everyone can fix it, bla bla. Without a "developer 
manual" every capable C/C++ developer would first have to dig in very 
deep in order to comprehend how the UX actually works, let alone how to 
change it.
