I don't think trying to be secretive about some great idea is going to benefit anyone except possibly yourself. The thing is, the whole of Cura is opensource. There are no secrets hidden there to a person with the programming and printing know how and a work ethic to understand it. This is where the strength is in the organization model. Holding an idea secret is withholding information from the group who has done so much to help one another in this community driven effort.
Sharing some break through idea here among experts and novices may be the best way to move it forward via feedback and brainstorming which would undoubtedly improve on the base. What could be the possible harm? So what if some other slicer or company grabs the idea? Posting it here prevents any party from monopolizing such ideas by establishing prior art.
I think the whole post is more likely some kind of baiting exercise...
I assume the idea is that you print outer perimeters at 0.1mm but print infill with 0.3mm only every 3rd layer.
If so this had already been implemented in cura; see "Infill Layer Thickness" option.
Since I don't know what your proposal is about below linked thread might be similar:
(note that #ctbeke explained that for good structural integrity walls need to be kept at same layer height - and I assume that's the reason why only infill thickness is configurabel but not inner walls.)
But the devil in the details so I'd definitely be interested in your idea - I myself do experiment with developing a post processing script that more-or-less does what I described above.
