But how often are you creating a single point on an existing line?  I find
if I am editing an existing line I am ALWAYS wanting to lower or raise a
section, not just add a fade in and immediate fade out (Or vice versa) so
in these cases I prefer to use the first method, click and drag to create
the range, and then click and drag to modify the value where it saves the
values before and after said range.

The only time I can think of where I, personally, actually want to enter a
single point is when I am drawing the automation manually (Not editing
existing automation) and don't care about the following values anyways.
