IV doesn't allow syncing negative inventory postion like GIV does.

When an Absolute sync is done for Item-Node combination with -ve value IV ignores it. Where as we have this functionality in GIV

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

If the ERP system inventory is -ve and IV only considers it as 0 when any adjustment will be created that would cause inventory to be out of sync.
Assuming if there was a issue in Trickle feed from source system and Sync is trying to correct the values.
ERP Inventory: -8 IV :0
Adjustment of 15 units should result in ERP to be 7 where as IV 15 causing Out of sync and we have no way of identifying such records in IV as there is no alerts we can set up.
