Default Organize Envelope Lanes

I am working with -many- envelope lanes on one specific track tonight, and I realized I'd love to have a way to basically:

1: Be able to move the lanes around.
(self explanatory)

2: Create collapsible folders to contain specific parameter data.

[Folder 1] EQ Band 1
-- Frequency
-- Gain
-- Q
[Folder 2] EQ Band 2
-- Frequency
-- Gain
-- Q
-- Shape
[Folder 3] EQ Band 3
-- Frequency
-- Gain
-- Q
-- HP/LP Slope


It would be nice to be able to collapse the folders and maybe just see all of the automation data collected on the folder lane.

well I was thinking maybe color by plugin, or by folders if envelope folders happen for example. Or by parameter colors like this request: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=159651

I haven't been following any discussions anywhere, but has there been any talks of possible implementation of this idea? I have been running into this issue more and more frequently.

Does anyone know which DAWs do support this? I think I'm going to have to temporarily move a few heavily automated projects to something new because this is just turning into a chaotic mess in Reaper. I don't usually go this heavy on automation, but I'm doing a very intensive sound design project that requires a lot, and Reaper just isn't cutting it for me with such a lack of organization for envelope lanes.

Anything that allows simply organizing them up/down and color coding them would be enough, but allowing envelope folders would be even better.

I hope to one day see this implemented, but until then, I don't mind doing a few projects in another DAW. I just need to know which one(s) might support it.

+1 and an API to re-order lanes as well.
