That would allows a lot of possibility into drawings to show dimensions that cannot be mentionned

    You get more power and control from the standard section lines today.
    You can at any time zig zag cut your sections by editing the section line at any time.

    If you were to ref a center line you would be limiting your future view updates that me require this function later, as they would be locked to a 2 point line.

    Seem like a lot of extra code (potential bugs) to allow another section input type, when today in only takes one click to plant a section on center.

    in case you didn't see the section command here it is:
    each number is a mouse click with location
