Adding a decoding window is a good addition and I added your comments there too. (hope it's okay)

6700 - HW.................. V 184.108.40.206
SSDR / DAX / CAT...... V 220.127.116.11
The SSDR has been made, taking thousands of hours to get to a fully working system. To mostly start over to add a new software into it will not happen I'm sure.
And this is were features we could purchase comes in. Ater V2.0
In fairness there are many groups and subgroups of hams. Full disclosure: I'm in the contesting/ARES main group and CW lover subgroup with a close tie to administrative as President of the Surrey Amateur Radio Club.
When I contest RTTY there are two decoders running on screen and I (N1MM) click on the most consistent callsign that appears. This may be applicable to CW.
(See bias above) CW is just a more efficient digital mode; having two or more (clickable) on screen decoders running may, optionally, be supplemented by the between the ears decoder. The choice becomes the best of three CW decodes (no minority reports planned).
Walt, Please avoid brain explosions BUT to be most effective the latency must be very low, as a contesting run reply has ONE repetition, unknown speed, unknown callsign rules, on or off frequency, (with diversity) locational stereo phase relationship, in passband or adjacent, then tonal separations of only a few hertz, and don't forget propagation phasing and the infamous chirp.
The best place to do all this is in radio - But no way I would suggest FRS move their radio server development into CW decode (Editorial: historically CW is not a FRS strong point). That leaves 3rd party DAX IQ development with possible supplement of video card (look up CUDA) array processing, coupled with a FRS option to add rules for 3rd party panadapter "leased screen space". That is brain exploding!
My in-brain CW decoder is multi-threaded: 1) Variable speed up to 60WPM conversion to a virtual/visual "ticker tape", correctable as a source letter is formed. and 2) A mental "ticker tape" reader that can correct for errors in 1) and mis-sends. This system fails below 20WPM and must use paper intermediate.
