SEO Priority Overrides Building Material Priority

This is based off the conversation from this post: Post subject: SEO's, Intersect Priorities and Layer priorities

Often enough one will want to use a Solid Element Operation only to find it is not working. The reason for it? In current versions of ArchiCAD (17,18,19) the Building Material Priority overrides the SEO with no option to control otherwise. A checkbox which gives the option to have the SEO override the Building Material Priorities should be present to allow the user to decide which mechanism overrides the other.

I wrote a bit of explanation in the other thread about how and why this works the way it does:

Honestly, it seems to me like a lot of the basic premises of PBC would have to be changed in order for this to work.
On the other hand, as an architect I would like my architectural application to provide me as much flexibility as possible, so I would like to be able to determine, if needed, how elements intersect - if needed, on an individual intersection basis.

James Badcock also mentioned a good point in a tweet:

Yes, PBC is skin-based and SEO is only element based, which further complicates things as far as the possible implementation of this wish is concerned.
