Make it easy to use a separate personal Lightroom CC account to supplement a regular work-based CC account on the same computer

I have a full CC account through my job which is signed in to my Mac. I use Lightroom CC on my Mac and iOS. I tried having a separate Lightroom CC account for a while but it sucks having to constantly sign out of *every* CC app just to use Lightroom, then sign back in when I want to open After Effects, Illustrator, etc.

So at the moment, my Lightroom account is tied to my work. If I leave my job, all my photos and edits are lost unless I follow an extremely convoluted migration process of downloading everything to Lightroom Classic, then uploading to a new account on Lightroom CC. WIth about 700GB of photos this can take forever on my slow connection. This has already happened to me once before and it was a HUGE pain.

Here's the deal. Let me buy a 1TB personal Lightroom account, and let me stay signed in to that account, but let me sign in to the rest of my CC apps with my work account. I feel that Lightroom is a special case where this just makes total sense. I don't want to upload all of my personal family photos to my work account but the current situation leaves me no choice.

I'm sure if you allowed this, you would get a huge number of new subscriptions. TAKE MY MONEY.
