Ableton Live 10 (without MIDI synced plug-ins and visuals), Bitwig 3 and Studio One 4.x do just that for example. Full working PDC without dropouts.
I assume that they add the new element (as Cubase does) but just behind the scenes and then somehow "release it" to the next useful musical time position (start of the next bar for example) - enabled by clever buffering.
