The scope of ardour's future control surface support is still open to
discussion.  But for small surfaces I can see that a notion of
controls that affect the "selected channel" would be quite useful. 
What control surface do you have?

If your midi controller has presets, you might be able to set up
something to control a large session today, but it will take a bit of
effort.  If you can explain how Cubase allows you to do what you want
with your controller, it will help define some features for the future
