Wireless Connections

What if you had the option to connect tools without the lines going across the canvas?
This might be useful in cases where one connection is close but another is far away.
Of course, it would need to be easy to turn these on and off, and to jump from one end to the other.
The idea came up at a SoCal Alteryx users group this summer. Would other people like to see something like this?

The following details came from here:

Wireless

When the Wireless box is checked, the connection arrows are set to be invisible.

Input/Output anchors will be marked with [wifi style icon] to indicate a wireless connection. The color of the bars is indicative of how many connections are coming into or out of the anchor. One bar = one connection; two bars = two connections; three bars = three or more connections.
