is it possible to add an arithmetic combinator which divides the input by two so as not to have to divide by two when entering the constant combiner ?
Sure, but lots of recipes have ingredient counts like 3 and 5, and belts have two lanes. This is engineering-land, you're not going to get perfect. Don't get me started on the changes that have catered to the desire for simplicity and abstract purity.
Sorry. It's just that I'm a perfectionist, and everything I've tried to create a mixer with the blue conveyor belts has failed so far. I would love for it to work, and for everything to be easy to set up.

Well, if you want a circuit that does that, build it. But if you want to guarantee letting exact odd item counts through you're going to have to cut your throughput down to one lane or bulk up the build dramatically to add some error correction to it.
