Here are the results in Sonar:
* note: the split dialog has a checkbox "enable non-destructive
editing" which I checked
a) split 8-beat C4 after 4th beat. Without cropping either region, the
entire note plays but the midi outline graphically disappears from
the right clip
b) crop right region (which is essentially an empty region)
- in piano roll, entire 8-beat event still graphically exists for
the original duration.
- playback: note-off is sent at end of left region, no note on is
sent at the beginning of the right region (as noted above, Sonar
basically erased it for the right region. Why,in the piano roll
view it still showed as n 8-beat note, I kinda-of understand.
c) crop left region
- track view shows the abbreviated midi outline
- piano roll has now truncated the original value to the (un-cropped)
value of the left region (4 beats) -- interesting behavior that,
again, I kinda understand.

Neither (2) nor (3) make sense in my opinion.
