On faders, there should be a little colored dot to tell us if there is already volume Automation present

It would be awesome if automatable parameters, especially volume automation, showed a little red dot or something next to the faders to let us know "Hey this fader already has automation on it!" like in Ableton. I know the mixer shows "Read" if there is automation, but it doesn't tell us WHAT is being automated.

In Ableton every automated parameter has a little red dot letting you know it has automation. This is extremely helpful in mixing so you know not to move the fader because it's just going to snap back to the automation value.

Please let me know if I am missing something! Thanks!
