As an picture & audio post facility, I have to say that a combination of clip based gain & EQ plus track & bus based automation is the most powerful and useful combination. Clip based keyframing of audio is clumsy compared to having track and bus faders to ride.

That said it is vital that a simple means to move track based automation with the clips is important so that automation made during the edit process sticks to clips. If Adobe can make sure this happens elegantly then I think editors will see the benefit of track based automation.

Whenever I had to rough mix in FCP the fact that everything was clip based was a major pain. It really is so slow and hopeless for track based effects like EQ, de-essing and dynamics processing. Trust me you will want track based automation as long as it is easy to cut and paste with clips.
