No offence to Isotonik guy, he's made his stance clear. But I live in hope...
From a Max4live point of view i stand by impossible, max4live merely accesses the Python Remote script of the controller, disabling and redirecting controls if neccessary, i just didn't want you to go down a route of paying someone to acheive it in this manner....
In Ableton you can build any size and shape redbox that you'd like, maybe it's possible with Python (which is a programming language used by ableton to access and control Ableton on a ground level with midi controllers) to create a 2 x 20 grid and then have it reference onto the APC40 for the first four and then second four rows... Python people would have to jump in here or you're going to have to learn how to code it (Hanz_Petrov is the guru on this and has just been announced worked closely on Push with Akai and Ableton)
I know it's possible to create single rows of 1 x 5 and have each as a different slot on the control surfaces in ableton but that would not be a solution as i mentioned you are limited to the five slots?
I think it would be a wicked way of playing as i've been using the method of the mega set since i got the apc40 and have ended up breaking my tracks down to just five sections which isn't as intuitive as i'd like, as a result i now trigger on the Launchpad and the APC40 handles looping and effects etc. Looking at the push though with the RGB feedback of the clips i think it will be amazing for DJIng with!!
ps no offense taken
