+1 David.

For a street car it would be fun to have such a build where 1st could be long, power/boost come in early enough for good starts off idle, and the power curve could naturally match traction or if needed be shaped by tapering boost in first such that at WOT traction can just barely be maintained (traction control?).

Then have the rpm drop in to second where we are not droping down to about 3800 rpm unless we are making so much power there that in will overpower the tires.

It dose not make any sense to reduce a gear split if a build is already overpowering traction.

Maybe for a monster Twin Turbo the big first to second split can work to one's advantage.

Thus, please see post #3 above.
