Yes excellent notion! Currently i use my transmission reverse light to signal inverter i am in reverse and it reduces torque to 30%. If i had 100% for reverse the acceleration backwards would brake my teeth on a steering wheel!

Regarding regen, Johannes uses a ramp configurable from certain Hz to 0 to be sure not to have high slip regen in lo rpm area. That would avoid high regen at stopping, like hitting a brick wall! I tried this with early software, not pleasant at all...
