Steve wrote by email 6Jun17: It may be "consistent", but it's problematic when multiple files are selected for import. There's no way that Audacity can know what order the user wants the files, which is not a major problem when imported as separate tracks because they can easily be rearranged, but is very important if imported end to end on the same track.

Unless/until we have an "import manager" or "clip handler" of some sort, I would keep "import to new track" as the default", and restrict "append import" to a single selected file (which could be a LOF file).
