Timelines are often used in novel writing. For example, the timeline workflow in Manuskcript . The concept can serve a similar purpose in writing historical articles but would probably hinder writing math proofs or technical manuals. For an editor, the feature should be accessible but hidden by default.

The advantage of these tools in a 3D design app might not be obvious to some but it saves from having to learn workflows of multiple apps. Once a user is comfortable with Blender's basic workflow and key commands, it's much easier to learn other parts of the software.
