This feature is only needed when let's say roundabout 30 to 50 locos are driving similar or you have heterogeneous electronic control equipment as the "Teppichbahner", where each station want to use his own CS mainly as control input device.
If you then want to centralize the connections to one central server PC, I can't imagine that. Keep in mind, that their could be distance up to 100m or more. With Ethernet no problem but with serial or USB I wouldn't do it.
For these situations R2Rnet and separate servers would be the better solution, I think.
I totally agree to that, especially for Teppichbahner R2R is extremly useful! And for very big Layouts, too, but this must really be very big layouts...
