If the simple-fraction components of a compound time signature respected the

    ----- + C     vs.    ----- + -
      4                    4     4

Undesirable in my book.

I overlooked the fact that the denominators are the same, ...

It could be interpreted as a compound meter 2+3 followed by one in 4, 
indicating that the metric accent on 4 should be stronger than the one on 3. 
This is different from 2+3+4, which means that it is unspecified, or possibly 
that they are about the same.

Ok, but this is something I would indicate by a ">" on the first beat of the 4/4 part and "simile" for the rest – or some explanation for the musician ...
