I think this sounds good! Although it places some extra pressure for track notation to become a first-class citizen inside the piano roll. At the moment it doesn't seem to respond to nudge commands or move together with the notes after select all to name the first things that come to mind, but hopefully that's coming.

Also thinking forward, it'll be important for editing to be able to replicate the latest track notation at split points when editing. I think ideally this would be a native option in REAPER, as well as doing it for CC, effectively replicating Cubase's IMHO essential "Editing / MIDI / Split MIDI Controllers" preference. But as long as scripts can access the track notation to do this, it would work fine as a script-assisted feature as well.
