How often are you actually recording on other tracks while "just monitoring" some others? I guess maybe if you're running hardware background synths that you want to hear but not record for some reason?
If you are working with MIDI and you don't want to "print" to audio yet then you have to play the project to monitor it.

That said, it appears that REAPER isn't exactly optimised for MIDI...
