Yeah, that could help. I think the one I've always wanted, or thought
would be good, would be like Pro Tools with a speed key to cycle
through the automation tracks. Audio goes grey, automotion shows up on
top, but then up arrow/down arrow would cycle you through all the
automation possibilities that have been enabled for that track. I
think something like that would be fast and use the minimum amount of
screen area.

As per your other question about finer control, I would think that if
I had the automation on top of the audio and the audio was larger that
I'd have more control. Again, that's driven by screen area. Working on
Ardour automation on a laptop screen is really hard for me due to
these screen area issues.
