I think that makes a lot of sense. Maybe if the hardware device and the master section were fixed like the fader section of the SSL when it's detached and maximized.
Only problem is any connections will look pretttty stretched out when you scroll far from the "home" rack.
It's probably not a piece of cake to code either.
I'd prefer a way to set markers on the rack that I could jump to with a keypress. Maybe one could be hw'd to take you to the master section. I think that would be much easier to code and simpler to use.
