Everyone agrees, that a good calibration is the most important thing to start printing.
but noone has knowledge or time to do this. so i demand an auto calibration tool.
we need 2 sensors near the nozzles, who detect the distance etc.
it should guide you through the calibration process, so you just need to change some screws.
nozzle calibration should be also much easier, and should be done from front.
if not, there should be an option to take out the whole nozzle tower easily without tools.

at least x axis could be done by a sensor. this sensor must detect the nozzle to bed distance and check the whole bed at mid and all edges, etc.
this isnt cheap, but hey, 100-300 euro would it be worth as addon!

i hate timewasting stuff.. and pro2 isnt that cheap, so 100 euros wont count...

There are already probes that can map out the surface of the bed. IMHO, a better solution that attempting to "calibrate" in real time while printing. A sensor that can measure your extrusion in real time, that would see all different materials and colors on all different build surfaces at any layer thickness would be a real challenge.

I work in industrial automation. I wouldn't commit to your nozzle calibration concept even being possible. If it's possible at all, it would require a very advanced vision sensor that would likely require an extra zero on your cost target - maybe two.
