Add the facility to transcribe clips in addition to the constructed timeline, and have the transcribed speech follow each clip.
The ability to transcribe clips, ie those in a bin or just In the project and not on the timeline. After transcription, have the transcribed speech attached to each clip so that when an in and out is set, the text follows the selection onto the timeline. text can be added to each file transcribed via EXIF data or maybe a sidecar file and would then be available to other projects without the need for re-transcription.

This would be very helpful. Imagine you're working on a documentary and have a bunch of interviews to transcribe before you begin editing.
(Yes, I'm aware of what Digital Anarchy is doing with Transcriptive. That's totally cool, but this request feels different or at least complementary.)
