I agree! One of my hindsight fantasies was to have a 4 track Fulton subway, as it is now, between Hoyt and Kingston/Throop. Just east of Throop, have a 2 track ramp diverge from between the express and local tracks. Run it up Chauncey St and connect it from Stuyvesant Ave to the overhead station shell at Utica Ave. Or build a new platform from Chauncy to directly under Utica at Fulton. Either way, run that route down Utica to Ave "U". The other route, east of Utica, I would have had the IND connect to the rebuilt portion of the Fulton St el, via a ramp, like the connection between Church and Ditmas on the "F". But, east of Atlantic ave, on the old portion of the Fulton el, your fantasy is as good as mine!
