The being able in a drag the knots (the 'dot node' essentially) and alter the tangencies in and intuitive and familiar way... for that matter take it further and have a 'pencil and pen' like vector tool that could sketch arbrary node wires any way wanted -- then relock the wire (if desired). This would serve similar functionality witout murking the node paradigm -- not introduce extra graph clutter, reduce excessive use of nulls and keep the graph clean -- just by being able to treat the curve connection in a way everyone is used to treating them in a design centric view ala the curve node or vector art app.
