Very interesting guys, our track is very very dusty yesterday was like driving a drift machine. Will give it a test and get you some feedback.

What about ( in a mostly right handed turn track) a harder compound on the left side and softer on the right side: one soft tire to give grip, and the hard tire for responsiveness. 40/37 works for me, and the car stays leveled longer too, no need to keep switching tires from left to right side !!!

One of my home track has too many right turns. So left tires will get thinner faster than right tires. After 30 minutes, ( in my car ) the split difference between left and right tires can be 2mm for front tires and 3mm for rear tires.

I havent try your idea though ...... ( I'm worried if my car turns wider if I use harder compound on left side ).

I understand your concern, but my experience with that setup has shown me better results than if you ran the same shore tires on both sides . The car will lean too much on the left side, making it turn left under acceleration, and reducing right turn steering. You want your tires to wear as flat as possible, even in a 30minute main !
