The key and fundamental of any individual track totally matters with EQ. EQ is amplitude of frequencies. So, depending on what key you're in...any given preset might suck the life out of the track or boost another frequency unnecessarily.
I see what you're getting at, but I normally think in frequency ranges for instruments rather than A 440Hz as a target frequency for example.
I do agree though that using stock EQ presets is not the best idea (for beginners especially) I more so think custom patch saving would be cool for what I stated in my last post and live performance (keyboard rig) reasons.
