    But I believe it splits the couplers?

    On the Inspire 227 it splits between the Block Flute 2 and the Tierce 1-3/5, at least that is what I see in the video.

    I guess the dealers want it there until they hear from their customers who don't like it there.

    I have to say that neither Allen nor Rodgers has excelled at artistic visual design in their instruments or printed materials.

    Companies in fields that are much more lucrative than electronic organs employ Human Factors Engineers. They study how people use a product and try to make an intuitive interface. It seems to me that without spending a great deal of money, Rodgers could have asked organists what they thought of this idea. I cannot think that any person who actually plays an organ would want this divide.

    If you think about it, the organ itself is the result of human factors engineering via the pipe organ console having been developed and improved over the centuries. The theatre organ's horseshoe console is, perhaps, one of the best examples of the result of careful thought to put all the organ's controls at the organist's fingertips.
