Default S3 Automation feadback features

Just got my new S3 and there's a few automation features that would be really helpful, or maybe I'm missing them.

I love that I can change the A/Rec button to control automation without using the Shift key, that's super helpful. But is seems like the obvious extension of this would be when using that pref, blink the red lights to show that a track is auto armed and have it go solid when recording automation. Also, it would be great to have better feedback in the first OLED as to what auto mode you are in i.e. TC, TL, LT. and some way to say trim as well. Perhaps using the lower color LEDs to brink red, turn green, blink red/yellow etc. For me that would be way more helpful that just matching the color of the tracks.

Thoughts?
