I am confused about this decision, I was going to bring up the same 
thing as the OP myself once I confirmed it in rc2.  As it is I have 24 
tracks of recordings from 4 shows I am importing into an Ardour session, 
so what you are telling me is because I don't have any input ports 
defined, as I am doing no work with recording this time around, that the 
panning will not exist?

I am just confused about the thought process behind it I suppose, but 
yall are the devs of course, just figured I would throw out my 2 cents.
