Or you inverse the phase of your second example;)

While you example is not necessarily bad, it is limited.  The basic concept
of editing at a zero point is not bad at all and comes in particular from
working with ProTools and other tools for me where there is (Or was last I
worked with it) a very audible difference(click) between editing at a zero
crossing and not doing it.  Of course you have to be sure you don't
replicate the same problem you mentioned, and that all your edits are at the
zero point, etc. etc.  Which is why I prefer Ardour's method of the
automatic short 5mS fade in on regions going off memory that essentially
eliminates that particular need and works very well with non destructive
