I think you're right. Send faders make no sense to me, still I'd love to see a mockup of that...
The SSL IMO is fine as is. I mean yeah I have to scroll up and down even on my 27" imac, but the faders are always at the ready, when the mixer window is detached. and usually I don't adjust more than one parameter at once
If they change anything on the mixer, I hope it's in order to create grouping ability. I've seen an SSL 4000G console and for grouping, it had eight little grey knobs below each level fader, so you could group them like that.
