I think that would solve the problem for high HP demands.
Have you guys thought of using a rising rate fuel pressure regulator? We've been using them for years in FI imports.
You mentioned wanting to be able to inject more fuel into the system aka the same way nitrous is done. We used to use sub-injectors that were RPM-reliant in FI cars in the 90s. These were nothing more than one or two fuel injectors that were tapped into the intake track and would only come on once a certain set RPM was hit. We got away from that when rising rate fuel regulators became more reliable in the early 2000s in conjunction with high-flow fuel pumps.
Just my 2 cents.
