Wave Meter disappointing

I am disappointed to see that the wave meter function in the meter bridge section of the mix console does not show waves as they are being recorded as they are in the project window.

when I am tracking, I rely on the size of the waveform in the project window often to see what my levels are because I am working primarily in the project window.

since this does not function when recording this feature has no use for me.

it would be great if the wave meters could show the waveforms as they are being recorded.
