You're right, I haven't noticed that yet. Your suggestion sounds reasonable.
I guess that GG wanted to standardize the mouse behavior. Logically it
makes sense, in Drag & Drop mode you have to select several clips with
CTRL + left mouse click. In Cut & Paste mode you can select multiple
tracks with CTRL + double left mouse click, therefore a similar behavior.
However, your suggestion is more user-friendly because you save the CTRL
key in the cut & paste mode. I like your suggestion. +1
(as long as it doesn't change the behavior in drag & drop mode and the
clip context menu.)
