Sure, already there, just assign a button on the initial Zone that never gets taken over by any other Zone:

ButtonThatNeverGetsTakenOver Zone InitialZoneName

This sets the active Zone to the initial Zone -- aka Home.

This would also clear any and all Zone takeovers -- aka Home.

Interesting question... I think if the selected Channel is on this surface, things can stay the same, the same Track is selected it has just changed positions on the surface.

Things get interesting if banking causes the selected Track to exit this surface.

We might try to get fancy and transfer the Sends mapping to the surface that just acquired the selected Track, but what if that surface only has 4 Channels, or 1 Channel.

For a first cut I'd say if the selected Track leaves the surface due to banking, it's like hitting the Back button on the Sends Zone, the surface goes to the Initial Zone -- aka Home.
