The problem about assigning the FX ret Mix button as you propose is this:
This button is already defined as Mix out to Auxes, Groups, Mains, just like any other Input’s Mix button. Changing this would break the logic behind the whole forward/backward mix assign procedure and make things more confusing.
Other than that, I had the same thoughts before, too…..
