Collapsing (hiding) bars and staves

Dear all,
What do you think about the folding bar feature like collapsing cells in Excel?

Could it be useful when designing and sketching a piece?

For example, a sketch of 10 bars can be played with only the currently unfolded bars 1, 2, 7, 8, 9 and 10, without interrupting the music, if the bars from 3 to 6 are collapsed.

The same can be done vertically. Of course, this can be done with different layouts, but collapsing seems more convenient.

You can already “collapse” vertically in galley view using instrument filters.
