Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I completely agree, ideally what you described is how a multiple service rail corridor should be designed. And maybe they'll actually get built that way. But even if they do, what's going to stop the area around major stations from sprawling beyond what you call a moderate distance? Rail absolutely needs density (and feeder services) but I can't see how what is now rural, open land won't be turned into low density housing without some sort of major change in how we manage the land. The two have to go hand in hand for the economics to be truly realized.
