Lightroom: Customizable autotone

It would be great to have the ability to customize autotone somewhat - for example, LR often pulls the contrast way down, and I would love to be able to tell it "autotone everything but the contrast" instead of having to run autotone and then reset the contrast to 0. Something similar to the checkboxes in the sync dialog, maybe.

Good idea, but consider now that you can shift double-click individual slider labels to set them to their auto-toned value.

Also, you used be able to edit preset files (.lrtemplate) to restrict which sliders get auto-toned (still can with legacy process versions), but it seems like there was some problem with completeness in the case of PV2012 - but I don't remember details - maybe somebody else knows...

The preset editing dated back to the days when ACR had separate checkboxes for the auto settings for each slider. It disappeared in... 3.7, I think... but the controls were leftover behind the scenes. They haven't created them for the new sliders. Personally I miss them too.
