Yeah, something like this. I think the biggest benefit is that you don't
lose any data during the adding detials to your animation and you would have
a flexible tool to build up animation, and on every level you see exactly
what the curve is for. And "go back in time" to change something you created
two levels ago without loss of higher detials you create in the meantime.
