I'm not sure how to answer your question "technically" speaking. I guess it's more of a presales opinion inquiry.
The M5 was definitely intended to be a "utility" effect unit. You've mentioned several scenario/conditions that already fit that. It's small, you can access 1 effect but of all the different category of effect models, there's a Tuner, there's MIDI jacks.
I think it'd work great as an addition to your current rig. Not sure that I can say much else beyond this, though. (I think you've answered your own question by going through the different scenarios in your writing)...

Some of us are at the other end, I'm waiting for the M26 to come out 6x4 or there abouts - then I won't need anything else! Also the looper could either use dedicated buttons, or use just one row - allowing all the other buttons to retain their original function. I find it a bit of a pain having to turn an effect on, go into the looper and turn it off again , in order to be able to use it later on, especially in the middle of a song.
p.s. if you chaps at line6 are considering a larger unit can I suggest that 'M25' would be a bad name in Britain, it is the name of the motorway (Interstate) around our capital city and is more commonly known as London's Orbital Car Park !
p.p.s. If such a box needs beta testing I'd be more than happy to help !
