Default Why, oh why is it so hard to query in OSC?

I know you can send /action/41743 to Reaper to make it "refresh all surfaces". But it's very far from a clever way to query Reaper for simple things... And really hard to handle on low powered microcontrollers...

OSC is mature, it's been around for a long time, even though it's not as widely used as one could wish. There MUST be a simpler way to ask Reaper for things like "what's the value of panning on track 3", or "is track 4 muted"?

Just to be clear - i'm not talking about feedback while changing values with OSC, they're returned perfectly. But I can't find a way to receice this feedback without setting a new value!
