I am not talking about editing content, I am talking about tweaking spreads, bleed and similar things. Some problems don't show until you have your publication printed on folded sheets. You might have to adjust the position of a line to avoid a jagged line across a spread etc.

Yes, but that was also what I wrote originally: The imposition code can start by just using imported PDFs as images (as PDF import works today) and later on be extended to import PDF as PDF and later on import direkt from SLA.
