Whoops, I definitely did misunderstand.

This problem isn't just shared by DAWs though - I've run into a lot of 
hardware that has so many things it tries to do that the knobs and other
controllers become difficult to use.

In newer digitally-based outboard gear, the problem becomes one of 
re-mapping controls, where the same button can do very different things
depending on what function the hardware is doing at the time.

User interface design pre-dates computers!
