Ability to Change Master Audio Track of Sequence
there are robust tools to create different master audio tracks in the CREATE sequence dialogue box, but many of these tools are unavailable in the sequence settings AFTER the sequence is created.
I, for instance, have been editing a very complex documentary and using a lot of track automation. I finish it, and have the L/R audio coming out.
Suddenly, my distributor wants breakout tracks for Dialouge, Music, Effects. it would be GREAT if I could just make my sequence an 8-channel master, and then route tracks to the different channels!
Becuase i've made extensive use of automation, I can't just start a new sequence and copy all clips over. Instead, I'm forced to export each track individually, then re-combine in a hacky way in QT Pro to get the 8-channel mix I'm looking for.

send an OMF. That's the correct workflow. Make your mix how you like it for levels and all, export a version for reference, turn off your effects and dissolves because sound engineers don't want editor versions of those things, and export OMF.
