What should happen in Ardour is

* Promote the 'auditioner' to a 'monitoring
  module'. The normal signal to connect to
  your monitors should be this module and
  not the master output.

* This monitoring module should have e.g.
  the jkmeter, a post-meter calibrated
  volume control, switches for L, R, and
  mono, a correlation meter, etc.

* It should offer several switchable inputs.
  The normal input would be the master output,
  a second could be the output of a limiter
  or mastering app following the master, 
  for broadcasting it could be the signal
  returned from the continuity studio, etc.
* When a (not in-place) SOLO is active it should
  auto-switch to this, same if you use the options
  to audiotion a region, etc. 

* This is also to place to put things like 
  intercom, talkback, etc, with auto-muting
  of the monitoring of course.

I'm using such as thing as a separate app
that is also aware of ambisonic formats etc.
It makes a big difference in usability.
