Editec is one ancestor, mentioned in that eulogy to CMX I posted:
http://www.smpte-ne.org/articles/eulogy.html    it used cue beeps
on the cue track - if a master had time code on the cue track you
had to erase it before editing.  There was no list, the edit was all in
the editor's mind, and to re-edit a cut you had to record a new beep
(the beeps triggered the edit) in real time, and use a Frame Adjust
control to compensate for your reaction time, to line up the beep with
the cut.  Dissolves and keys/mattes were somewhat manual, but
you could even do traveling mattes by syncing an animation stand
with GPI control.
