Is there a way to have multiple Sound Variation lanes?

The sound variation feature has been great so far but I'm finding it a little limiting for my exact use case. I'm using Impact Soundworks' Shreddage library and you can utilize multiple key switches at the same time. For example, I regularly assign the performance key action (single note or chord articulation, for instance), specific string key switch, and pick direction key switch all at the same time. 

I'm currently doing different key switches in different ways and it either feels hacky or it's not always easier than putting the key switches in the piano roll like before. I use the sound variations for the performance notation then whenever it makes sense to use the musical symbols panel, I do.

If I recall correctly, the original version of the sound variations panel did let you have multiple key switches at the same time but I'm guessing people thought it was clunky so they updated it out. Or maybe they didn't and I'm not sure how to add multiple lanes. Is this a thing? laugh
