But, the question remains: What was the idea behind that two-format or rather two-cassette-types concept of the C200?

Seen those mechanics these magazines must have been expensive and why should one share two cassette systems as indicated in the advertising? So far the only explanation would be to have access to all film types on the market.
Don't forget that Super 8 allows about 90 frames backwind while Single 8 allows as much film as has been shot to be backwound.

In addition, each system (Super 8, Single 8, and, WRT the C-300, DS 8) had its partisans. Offering optional magazines allowed one camera body to serve both submarkets.

About intercutting Super 8 and Single 8. With tape splices, yes, of course. With cement, sorry, no.
