Imagine going back to keyboard mode for a previously recorded synth track and being able to get a visual indication of what notes had been entered. The Novation Circuit does this (the keyboard pads light up with the appropriate notes as the steps go by) and it can be helpful.
I could see it being implemented by going to keyboard mode during playback and having the pads of the corresponding notes light up white as the steps in question play.
Another thing you can try to do is play with the "SHAR" option for sections (to share the launch status, so launching a section doesn't mute another section):
By holding down a "section" pad and turning the select knob far-anticlockwise, the option "SHAR" will be arrived at, which means that the section may share its "launched" status with other sections: launching it will not automatically stop tracks which belong to other sections. However, it remains the case that only one track per synth or kit preset may play simultaneously, so launching a "SHAR" section may still cause other tracks to stop if the use synth or kit presets also used in the section being launched. This could be a useful option if you wish to launch several tracks simultaneously (e.g. a bass and a lead line), but leave some previously-playing tracks playing (e.g. a beat).
I assume this would be sort of like adding entire section colour groups to the arranger instead of individual tracks?
This missing feature is the only concern I have with placing an order, as I love to play chromatically, but not sure I'll be able to wrap my head around the guitar-style view and don't want to have to carry around a midi controller.
