I would never want to live without it.
The inspector will never be able to show as much info at the same time on a single channel.
Well that is the thing. The Sonar Inspector managed to show everything. It is possible. Pro Tools gets most of the way too in it's own way. IMO the Cubase Inspector makes inefficient use of space. I think most of the stuff can
fit in there.

I think everyone has their own way of working and I wouldn't want to impose my way on anyone else. I certainly don't want the Channel Editor removed but I think it has gotten in the way of Steinberg making better use of the Inspector area. They assume that everyone is happy with having the Editor open. I would prefer not to ever have to open an extra window. I don't even want to use the Mixer if I can avoid it. (As was possible in Sonar. Everything available directly in the Inspector or the channel itself).
PS: But I realise my preference isn't for everyone. I love high density information. I even did a mock design for Sonar X1 when it came out because I felt there just wasn't enough stuff:
