Lightroom Classic: Improve tone curve to better match Photoshop

Lightroom Classic's tone curve could be improved considerably if it were just a little more like Photoshop's tone curve:

Display the red, green, and blue channel curves along with the RGB curve when RGB is selected in the Point Curve mode. It is annoying not being able to see all the curves together.

Provide an Auto button that at the very least applies Enhance Per Channel Contrast with a Snap Neutral Midtones option. Enhance per channel contrast can be done manually, but it would be so much more useful if it were automated - then there is the possibility of adding it to a preset, which cannot be done with a manual adjustment since every image is different.

Not too much to ask for, so please consider.

Great idea that would be very helpful when adjusting certain image file types. I also suggest that Black and White point sliders be added at the bottom of the Tone Curve Histogram same as in PS. Often when adjusting these they are pulled off of their 0% and 100% horizontal axis, which limits the clipping point in the Basic panel.
