You're not dreaming at all. I use this combo for weddings and model shoots. I have several 550EX flashes and AB1600 that I can use in combination: TTL for speedlights, Manual for speedlights, Manual and TTL with speedlights and AB. PW ControlTL system works, it's just that out the gate they were crap because of the interference with Canon's flashes. People were, and still are frustrated because the "gold standard" unexpectedly failed. It is well documented and options with the system are available. Since corrections have been made I have not had one fail that I can recall. Again, I went with what I learned that works. Others gave up on PW and went in different directions as noted.
