Default Q: Don't Create Empty Takes option?

Is it possible to tell REAPER not to create empty takes when recording with overlapping (crossfaded) media items? It's common to end up with 20+ takes in a single item even thought each item only has 3 or 4 actual streams of audio.
I have a shortcut for the action to remove empty takes, but the action doesn't work in certain cases.

Cheers!

My workflow is to slip edit parts as they are recorded so they don't overlap. Much less cleanup later, and it's simpler to tell what I intended to keep.

It'd be nice if the was a punchin mode where it only records when sound is above some user set threshold, like -45 dB. While that would leave a pile of items on the track, at least there would be no empty take fragments cluttering up the track.
