Not at this time. In future versions ardour will have a more
organized control surface configuration setup, where a binding
setup based on numbered track position will be possible.

Yeah, we know about the lack of a bind disconnect, it is fairly
important given the lack of any central binding gui. There might
be a chance we can convince paul to sneak it in before 1.0.

Nope, not yet. This will come later when we do a good implementation
for control surfaces.
