About adding clips, maybe you could click in a given clip and have 2
options in the context menu:
"Add clips before this clip"
"Add clips after this clip"
(or "before selected clip" or "before current clip"...)
It's directly intuitive (text describes it correctly) and adds the 2
possibilites that an user could need.
Both options would bring up the "Add to timeline" menu but will add the
selected clips before or after the current clip. By default, the track
of the selected clip should be "configured" by default in the "Add to
timeline" menu but you can change it to use a different track or even a
Allowing to add clips to a different or new track would allow the user
to add music or clips for transitions just at the exact time as the
current clip without having to place them manually. As an example, if
you want to add music starting exactly when a concrete clip, you can
click over it, select ("add clips before this clip"), select an audio
file, select a NEW track, and the audio will be inserted at the exact
time than the selected clip, but in a new track, without displacing any
item, so music + current clip will be synchronized.

So when you want to add a clip to a project you don't have to move all titles/transitions and other clips on other tracks forward.

Or (and this is maybe another feature request): Select multiple clips (on multiple tracks), group them, and be able to move the group and to keep them, as a grouped set, "always" together. This also requires an "Ungroup" action.
