Welcome to the Rockbox Technical Forums!
Why not, honestly? If you want to insert into an existing playlist, pause instead of stopping.
The reasoning behind it is that you do not have a current playlist when stopped. If you start playing without creating a new playlist rockbox will resume the old one.
1) What "other choices" are removed? You simply asked about the "Insert" choice. Why exactly *doesn't* pausing work for you, and why should someone add an option to "Clear Playlist" since it's unnecessary as it stands? Right now, all inserting to a stopped playlist would add is the necessity for someone to manually clear a playlist without adding any new functionality, just hassle.
"Play Next" and "Insert" would perform the same function when the playlist is empty. Whether it is physically empty or not, it is supposed to be conceptually empty when playback is stopped, therefor "Insert" is inserting into an empty playlist.
You still haven't answered the "What new functionality would this add, beyond requiring a user to have a new way manually clear the playlist"?
Play Next does NOT interrupt the current song, so to clear the playlist you'd have to stop, "Play Next", then resume, then hit next.
There is no option currently for explicitly clearing a playlist.
And "Selecting a song" won't work for inserting a single song into an empty playlist, meaning you HAVE to introduce a clear operation and make it more of a hassle for playing a single song than it is now.
Play can be thought of as "reloading" the previous playlist, if you need a term that is more semantically applicable. Does thinking of it this way solve your problems?
I think that if you actually think about what's going on, the behaviour will make more sense.
