I don't know the answer yet, so I will not vote yet.

There are benefits to the current "vision" of tracks being able to contain audio and/or MIDI data. If nothing else, it sounds appealing.

There are also benefits to having a track's menus, buttons, controls, and options be optimized for what is actually there (MIDI, audio, or both). That also means that you wouldn't need to look at options that are not applicable.

I suspect that things like not having a prominent option labeled "Transpose" for MIDI, are the result of the current vision. The logic being (maybe) "You can't transpose audio, why have a transpose control for MIDI? It would clutter the GUI, and eventually lead to debauchery, perversion, and anarchy."
