For automatic separation C4 is the most convenient point, right in the
middle of the treble and the bass clefs. But this should be only used
for automated combination of several parts in one single grand staff.

Absolutely. Except for piano, harp, organ or a combination of several
parts, a grand staff is mostly a waste of space, especially if you
support transposition. And for those instruments I would tend to
create two separate tracks, one in bass clef and another in treble
In the end, FloSE (Flo's Score Editor), should eventually support clef
changes as events within the part. It would be convenient to be able
to edit the very first of these events in the track property editor.
