What, exactly, do you mean by "both at the same time." You want the song
at a higher pitch, and to be over with sooner? The options I'm
discussing are not exactly the same as the options currently available.

As to flexibility, the options I've described would allow the maximum
flexibility in the least number of options and most understandable
relative to what we have now, where "speed" really doesn't provide
meaningful information to the user when pitch is also changed. So
"maximum level of flexibility" is already achieved. Adding more just
means redundancy for a relatively minimal benefit.
