The following apparently does the trick:

  bind U eval "split -v" "focus bottom" select

After sourcing the above, "C-A U" presents me with a focused empty
region with a message near the bottom prompting me for the # of the
window I wish to switch to.

Good enough for my personal use.

FYI - regarding the "caption never" enhancement I mentioned in my
original post, I found two recent posts over the last few months that
requested the same thing.

Thank you very much for your help.
