Well, yes and no. ;)

I aim to address the issue of immutability mainly and efficient
concatenation/traversal with an implementation that is
memory-efficient (in use and requirements).

The only overlap between a chain and a rope is the efficient
concatenation/traversal characteristics. A chain will basically be
immutable as compared to a rope which still enables mutation.
