Tod, I and several others solved this issue the old fashione way.

Make all your MIDI tracks one big continuous item, like all the old Skool sequencers did back in the beginning.
Looping items is fine if you want to do cut n paste stuff, but for people who actually play the parts in track by track or as ensemble recordings, the stock reaper setting is not much use.
Mind you, I have adaptend my workflow over the years, so when I need a drum part that is pretty repetitive I cut n paste & then glue all the items so I can go back in and add fills hits etc. to make it sound like it wasnt played by a robot (or me repairing all my crap timing and clumsiness errors!)
