We have something coming very soon for this. It'll accomplish automatic round collapsing as you scroll. The plan is to default to hiding completed rounds on page load as well.
Regarding the wider losers bracket, hiding completed rounds will hopefully give a better experience like you said. Next weekend, we'll be needing to show off Top 32 of a 1,024 participant bracket, so we'll hopefully have it figured out by then :-)

We initially held off on adding this because our Swiss system is in need of a rewrite. However, time has clearly shown that the Swiss rewrite is having trouble getting to the top of our list, so we'll look to integrate the existing Swiss system into two stage.
In the meantime, please note that a 4-person double elimination group with *2* people advancing accomplishes nearly the same thing as 4-player Swiss. R1: 1v4, 2v3, R2 expected: 1v2 (1 advances), 3v4; R3 expected: 2v3 (2 advances). Swiss would be R1: 1v3, 2v4; R2 expected: 1v2, 3v4; R3 expected: 2v3, 1v4 (unnecessary), 1 & 2 advance.
