- With the advent of NLE editing, most tracks are batched in and so the editor has all the tracks available for preview. Having mic information is ancillary since the best track should be decided upon based on an actual listen.

Just thought I'd throw in a couple student-loan-cents:
I'm not really aiming to be a sound guy, but when I've been doing audio post or edit in school projects, and not doing the location audio myself, there have been times when I wished there existed some sort of audio log. Sure, you have to listen to what sounds best, but my impression is at times I could have saved a fair bit of time sorting out what to use if I knew what each track was at all times.
For example: "In this clip, track 2 is just a bacup cam mic and sounds much worse than track 1. In this well-written audio log, I can see that ALL shots on that location used the same setup, so unless there is a problem with track 1, I can safely mute track 2 on those clips." :-)
