Everyone would have to deal with this: It's difficult to imagine introducing 3D in parallel (as long as you don't do it completely disconnected, i.e. a fork), because everything is connected and someone not aware of 3D information would damage it inadvertently as soon as he was starting to make 2D edits on 3D data.

imho a good routing program would display a list of existing
