The "alternative" approaches of Ableton...come down to merely restricting choice of functions rather than offering revolutionary new ones.
Can't agree with that. Max for Live is an outstanding product; innovative and highly versatile.
Also Ableton 9 seems to feature vastly improved midi functions. If only they can sort out the ridiculous lack of VST3 support (essential for sidechaining) I think I'd ditch Cubase forever.
