Did you actually try it? It sounds like what you describe is exactly
what Ardour-git does.

Shift+Drag on a fader *inverts* the group setting. Enable disabled
groups and disable enabled groups.

What's arguable is that the effective state is inverted. e.g. When a
group is enabled, but the group is configured to not share gain,
Shift+Drag also enables gain-sharing.

Shift+Click Solo toggles Solo-isolate, Ctrl+Click overrides group on
Solo + Mute.

Ctrl+Alt+click is supposed to exclusively solo (regardless of solo
mode), but that's currently broken in git. Fixing this and also allowing
multiple solos in Excl. Solo mode is trickier. I'll see if I can squeeze
that in before the 5.9 release.

Indeed, "empty" port-name for those means "use defaults". Unless you
audition or enable the metronome it won't play anything on these ports.

It's intentional and not a bug. It's a lot more inconvenient if they're
not connected to anything.
