In my personal (limited) experience, this is indeed the starting point,
even for tec dives, e.g. let's plan 10 minutes at 100m and see what the
planner says based on those gases. Ultimately, the planner should even
suggest gases based on minimal inputs (number of decos, use of travel
gas, max END, etc.). But even for the basic thing (when you specify your
gases by hand), you need configurable descent and ascent speeds. At last
one of each, but it's much better if you can specify ascent speeds by
depth intervals (e.g., 10m/min for up to the first deep stop, then
6m/min, 3m/min and finally 1m/min).

Just my 2 cents.
