If you don't want them to be in sync, just don't put 
one into the other (of course there could be an option 
to break sync even with nested meter containers, but that 
would be in conflict with the whole concept. The relation 
parent-child and the visualization would loose meaning).

And of course there should be a global (or per absolute time / 
transport control container, not sure) % tempo control.

To be honest: no, that was not my original idea. But it 
could be made possible, and would be more practical. 
Good point.
