No cut to new layer workaround

Sorry if this has been talked about to death -

But what are peoples workaround for the cut to new layer lack of functionality within Cubase?

from a year ago:

https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=294&t=164627&p=881292&hilit=layer+new#p881292

In it Robin describes a workaround. I have always hoped someone would come up with something that makes a little more sense, especially with pseudo-ARA2 in Cubase.

Thank you
