:-) yes, I know.

But for the moment I have found my preffered solution, as I said above. ;-)

Maybe you like this modification?

First you would need an area that show all apllied effects, and the appropriate parameters, when a clip is selected.
Then user could use this area to select one or more of the parameters of an effect (maybe just some parameters of different effects too?) to show it in the keyframe area of the track. 
Kdenlive should create separate keyframe areas/tracks for each selected parameter/effect. 
The keyframe tracks will disappear when user select another clip, but should be re-stored when user select the initial selected clip again to make more modifications.

Maybe this could be somewhat helpful to keep the timeline clearly arranged?
