Some of the user base is asking for it; Gerard and
Fons come to mind. Many of us aren't experienced
enough to understand the ramifications. If the
developers implement a solution to the sophisticated
possibilities, then %98 of us have a chance to become
more creative in our mixing strategies than what you
or I might be doing today.

Without having given the conversation a fair shake, my
intuition says try very hard not to simplify Ardour
development by skiping past difficult challanges in
order to ease the workload.
