It could morph into a separate window containing things related
to monitoring: volume, listening to selected channels, switching
speakers, an insert for e.g. an Ambisonics decoder, talkback, etc.

For Ambisonics I think sooner or later some 'hints' will be required
to tracks and strips. For example a mono PFL, auditioner, effect send
etc. on such a track/strip should either know how to handle the format
or otherwise use the W (mono) channel only.

Anothor nice thing would be some way to 'group' e.g. the 4 channels in
an Ambisonics track so they can be routed as a unit (mixing them up
can lead to *very* confusing results). But this is more a JACK issue.

I'll release some simple Ambisonics plugins (to be used as Ardour
plugins) later today (I still have to write the README :-).
