Maybe an integrated tyre / insert (like a tubular for road bikes) is the way forward.  Then it could be designed as a system rather than parts.  Or go one step further and integrate the rim into the tyre / insert package.  This would however require tyre and rim manufacturers to co-ooperate. I'm lucky in that I can run Exo tyres without inserts where I ride however I do rub split tube (ghetto) tubeless and haven't had any pinch flats (touch wood) in the last 8 years despite lots of dents in my rear rim.
