Now I would like the Niners to use a similar approach to their option game and pretty much scrap the pistol. Now to tie this back to the WCO, I don't see why the Niners couldn't use a similar formation but bunch the Wideouts and run at horizonal and vertical stretch concept like spot on the bunch side. The formation still gives you the ability to use the option game and basically this series of plays can become a check with me. I think something like this could work well against have press teams cause of the bunch and if you option out of this form it make the defense alert for that.
Are you referring to the new age concept of packaged plays? This is Chip Kelly's offense in a nutshell. It's an offensive style that the league's defenses is slowly having to adapt to. It preys on the defense's inability to cover everything at the same time, while giving the QB very simple reads by isolating a particular defender. This article is the most straight forward explanation I can find on the web (there's a lot). It's the read option on steroids. I read around and the Packers, Bills, Bears, Lions, Broncos, and Cowboys all dabble with this concept.
