GoZoneIndex and the correct Navigator. If one side can be removed ie. by making it always GoZone, then it becomes harder to mess up.
Agree 100%

Just couldn't think of a way to do it, until you caused a rethink -- thanks !

The architecture is set up exactly as you say -- any action not requiring an index ignores the index part -- the receiving side of the equation is already implemented.

It is now a matter of redesigning the Activate Zone section to ALWAYS send an index -- which is most often 0 (sender) and most often ignored (receiver), except in the case of Sends/FX.

So ParentZone will be dropped, and GoZone will always set and Index automatically.

Working on it...
