non-destructive event editing/plugin inserts

i´d love to have the posssibility to edit the events just in the way we do on tracks, including automation, plugin-insert and sends.
Actually Samplitude/Sequoia has got this feature as well as your own product Wavelab, too.
In many cases of sounddesign with a lot of short clips/events this just shoots up the workflow.

And by the way: aaf import/export would be nice.
