I'd like to strongly agree with PA and add, although he covered this to some degree, that any feature or tool which makes an in-depth knowledge of the tracker less necessary to operate it and use it to its full extent would be counterproductive to promoting an ideal community: one of "power users" that understand all the technical workings of the tracker and "beginners" that can ask for help and receive clear instruction/explanation; with work and education, these "beginner" users can become more proficient users and gain a better understanding of the tracker, becoming "power users" themselves. Incorporating shortcuts and tricks that mask the actual technical functions of the tracker prevent people from putting in effort to actually learn about the tracker and how it works.

"A button that does a thing" is unnecessary and counter-intuitive when there is already a sequence of more clearly-labeled buttons with more definite functions that can be used for more specific purposes by the user. If you really need to make your own automation make it, but there's no reason to incorporate it in to the main build to confuse users and mask the basic functions it is automating.

It really doesn't keep users from learning how to use the software if it is a part of the software.

That's like saying that people who use only the .midi import function know how to use famitracker, simply because the .midi import function is a feature of famitracker: there's a difference between knowing how to use the software and knowing how to use the software well.

EDIT: My post was in refernce to MiniMacro's previous post, not PA's immediately before mine.

Okay, I probably didn't word that right.
If someone is making a song, they might use this button for its intended purpose.
It does the same function as the sequence of buttons it's intended to replace.
