Sorry, I don‘t get it. What is the problem with pO2 Sensors?

You could always interpret „gas switch“ not as „switch of gas in cylinder“ but 
as „switch of breathing gas“ as that what PSCR divers experience when going 
from the loop to OC.

I would say, the main difference is to make „PSCR mode“ not a global thing for 
a dive but more local in time. Note that this is already the case for „CCR 
mode“: We have set point that can change over time with 0 indicating OC and 
„CCR mode“ in a more strict sense (as in the combo box) is simply a dive that 
has at least at some part non-zero set-point (but we don’t use that to 
determine the breathing gas at any moment).

Does that make sense?
