What about backstay adjusters? When you round the weather mark and ease a backstay adjuster, or, when you start to become overpowered on a windward leg and you increase the tension on the backstay adjuster, bending the mast on a fractional rig, or reducing headstay sag on a masthead rigged boat, doesn't that make a radical change in rig tuning on the fly? It seems to me that using a backstay adjuster is the essence of dynamic rig-tuning.
