Mmm very interesting!

Just going through this little problem myself.
My next layout will have a shunting yard area, so I will need to have a play about with the couplings.

I've test fitted some spratt&winkle couplings to a couple of wagons, and they do actually seem to work quite well.
I do like the idea of the delayed coupling, which did appear to work on my bodged up bit of track, with a bit of magnet wedged below the track.
I really need to make up a proper test track with the magnet located correctly to set the loop heights up and make sure everything works ok.

Will post pics when I actually get that far.
