I did this several times - for example using a filter after a delay and
then a feedback loop (instead of the delay's own feedback) so that each
repetition of the delay is degraded a little more. In the case of Q's
session it obviously was a delay and a reverb that interacted in a
similar way.

IMHO it would be a real pity if such effect chains wouldn't be possible
in A3 anymore.

Plus... I can't remember that I ever created a potentialy harmful
feedback in A2 by accident. It might be nice to have it as a safety
net, but only as long as it is implemented in a way that it doesn't
hinder such kinds of workflow.
