That still kills the whole application, especially with brute force parameter -9.

It is intended as a suggestion if you have launched freecad twice for a time-consuming import in the background. if it takes too long you can stop it and keep the freecad running while you work.

If you work with Different Application on Windows, there are some that kill a tab if it crashes. e.g. Firefox is such an app. And some which kills the whole Application. I'm not a developer but If I'm imaging an Application I would assume there is program code for the Appearance of an application (GUI) and program code that modify an open FreeCAD file.

Is it difficult to separate them, so the Crash of on part do not affect the other Program part?

it could also work e.g. running a 2nd windows or linux in a virtual box with freecad for background operations

Why would you propose Linux as second Process? Is the Calculation on Linux faster?

I can't guarantee that. in my test with ifc import it was significantly faster

in my opinion, freecad is sufficiently developed here to use it professionally. if time and energy is spent improving freecad, it should be done with techdraw, there are often regulations for drawings where something like techdraw is needed in companies.
