Saw those requests and thought here's an idea for a custom program
pending Autodesk doing something.
I may have some time available mid year to entertain myself with it.

Not sure if you have control over how the field crew obtains the shots but the one point curve is designed for this situation. It is mentioned in several of the AU screencasts on field to finish and is shown about half way down on the "Curve Segment Codes" page in Help.
