Default After recording MIDI, expand / trim media item beginning and end to nearest bar

As the title suggests, I think it would be helpful if, after recording midi, the media item start and end were expanded (trimmed?) to the nearest bar on the grid.

This currently happens with retrospective record so I think it would be consistent for it to happen in normal record.

It would be a great timesaver when wanting to loop newly recorded midi items, IMHO, as I spend a lot of my time, post recording, triggering an action to expand the item.

If this isn't useful to some, then maybe an option?

Edit: Having thought about my discourse with Vitalker below, I now think "trim" is also relevant for both start and end of the item. Say you start recording before bar 3 but you don't actually play a note till the 2nd beat of bar 3. For me, the beginning of the item should be "trimmed" to the start of bar 3, not expanded to the beginning of bar 2. Same with the end ; You finish playing before the end of bar 3 but continue recording over the beginning of bar 4. I would want the item to be trimmed to the end of bar 3 rather than expanded to the end of bar 4.
