[Mike Warmels] "And when you forget to do something (and FCPX will allow you to forget things) you're in a big mess."

Not really... the biggie is setting Roles when you import media, but that effectively negates all the work you need to do with tracks in Avid or Pr. Meaning no track patching, setting up different sequences for multitrack export etc. Do it on import and you're done. And X generally assigns correct Roles on it's own, but for multichannel sources you need to do it.

[Mike Warmels] "If I just add up from import in FCPX to AAF export:"

No, it's actually much more like what you describe for Avid, Couple extra steps up front, but it saves a lot of time later...

1. Create Library
2. Import media
3. Check Roles and Set Roles on Multichannel Audio
4. Disable unwanted tracks in the Master Clips (you can always re-eanble at any time if you need them)
5. Order media in Events using KW Collections
5. Create Project with project settings (or let project settings be set by the first clip cut in)
6. Edit (enable/disable stuff here too, but it really is less "work" than track management)
7. Export to AAF, Check settings and Save.

Obviously not the same, but it's pretty easy. X is certainly not all skittles and unicorns, but it's not brain surgery either, just a different way of doing things. You need to pay attention to them, but Roles are an enormous time saver for a lot of reasons///
