Mode 2 is actually very important -- it's the only way you can drag out 
a selection box to select and edit multiple notes at once. I think you 
can edit multiple notes in mode 3 if you shift-click on them all, but 
that's very tedious compared to just clicking and dragging out a 
selection box.

I'd agree that you should be able to resize the MIDI regions while note 
mode is on, though.
