While EQ settings should be judged on how it sounds in the end, 
a graphical representation allows to see at a glance what is going 
on. There might be lots of tracks/busses with EQ and other efects 
and the user can't be expected to memorise it all. You could compare 
it to a comment in sourcecode, which helps the author to recall what's 
going on, or another user to get it at all :)

Now I think an ardour-mixer-strip-gui extension for lv2 plugins would 
rock, but I can easily say that, I won't implement it myself anyway ;)
