I guess this is another case of "do we want to do it like the others  
or do what we think is right" or even worse "what the heck are the  
others doing?"...
The "feature" with multiple solo instruments is also available in  
Garageband... I think it's a pretty useful feature if you're having  
lots of instruments and want to listen to just a few of them but I  
can also see that it's not the most intuitive choice.
