I doubt if you'd find that with a multitrack tape machine or the
automation system on a large mixing console. Both require prior
knowledge to operate. These are what a DAW is meant to replace.
As such it needs to behave in a way which allows audio engineers to
do their job and not get in the way of that. It also helps if it is
basically similar to other DAWs so that an AE changing from another
system can still work with it.
Complaining that Ardour doesn't behave like a programmer's text editor
is missing the point completely IMO.
