I believe I need time to understand everything in that post, but by now, I believe you've put a bit of light on a part which I forgot, which is concretely these partial sequencers.
When I first thought about it, it was not practical, since you needed to work more (creating them) and it's not clear. when you sequence.
But taking into account they being machines, this means that you can group machines which are sequenced by one sequencer, and others with another, or even a single one, like you say.
for drumloops, usually a 16beat looper is pretty nice, and for synths, a piano roll lets you do "weird" things fast :·P
To sequence this, a big cubase-like sequence is the best. You can have there a column for each sequencer machine, and order the patterns there. Also it is very practical to play only one part of the sequence this way.
Auto-assignations, and modifications "on-the-fly" will be "a must".
The problem is that I didn't want to go with excesively windowing, which is what this model goes to.
Also, this simplifies the task, when the Master sequence (That is, Psycle) only needs to send events to the sequencers at certain times, and it can even be independent of the audio. It only needs to know the patterns, and optionally, get information from the sequencers about modifications and such.
Not bad Idea... Might be the way we will go.
