Thanks for pondering.

I assume there's some technical considerations which is why Cockos doesn't allow us to automatic the track FX bypass.

For what it's worth, I'd happily trade a bunch of added track latency for this feature, as I would generally enable it on tracks I'm not currently tweaking, or tracks with only a small amount of audio, but high CPU usage (not a big fan of item FX for this)...
