Well thats no problem, but to give the best answers I need to know where to start!
For instance understanding the differences/relationships between old fashioned analog age dB and dBfs, then theres LU, and various other measurements of varying relevance.

Lost me there. Not sure what this means.
BTW/IMO all Katz really did was move the scale around. So 0dB wasnt really 0 anymore, but referencing some new target levels. The concept was useful for a short time in reference to the "loudness war" situation, but again IMO the situation has changed in a way that "moving the goal posts" really isnt necessary. But perhaps we are getting ahead of ourselves or I am misunderstanding the question?

For me. Dont know what you mean here.

OK again, the problem arises because the inserts ARE pre-fader in this case.
Ideally (IMO) any current DAW should include a native master bus metering tool set that functions post fader, and includes true peak, RMS/LU measurements as well as the standard dBfs.
Would be a really good location for a mono toggle as well.... To check for mono compatability. Just sayin'

Varies. suspect we'll come back around to that shortly.
