Currently step-record mode inserts notes over the top of existing notes, creating chords and tied notes where neccessary.
But if you want to insert some more notes somewhere in a measure, you have to move all the notes from the insert point to the end of the piece to make room for the inserted notes. This is like a text editor without an insert-mode where you would have to kill and yank all the text until the end of the document to make room for an insertion.
It would be much more straight-forward, especially from a composers perspective if an insert mode existed which shuffled all the notes in the current segment to make room.
Additionally if this mode also affected cut/paste/del/drag/etc operations, it would be much more like editing text and less like editing a binary file with a hex editor.
