Yes, fair point, but I have accidentally applied the next move or trim
operation after a split to both the newly-created regions when I meant
to only affect one a great number of times. It is possible to do
multiple splits in a row using a track selection rather than a region
selection: if there are no selected regions, split operations apply to
all regions at the edit point on selected tracks. I don't know if that
would fit with your workflow, but it is another way to do it without
requiring that newly-created regions are selected.

There have been a few discussions about this on IRC: Ben at Harrison
agrees with you (hence the conditional on Mixbus), but it seems we might
have to bite the bullet and make it a config option...
