If busses had latency-compensation a lot of work would be needed: Adding 
effects like reverb and delay is usually (at least in my workflow) done by 
adding a bus with that effect and adding sends to all the channels. That adds 
parallel signal flows with just some simple mouse-clicks and calls for _lot_ 
of intelligence from the latency-compensation...

And what do you do if a bus gets only signals from outside?

I think the current way is right because its easy.
