Camera Raw/Lightroom: Intuitive/predictive colour correction sliders

When colour correcting/optimising thousands of RAW photographs after an event shoot, I always seem to do similar combinations of adjustments no matter what the image/lighting conditions.

Has Adobe thought to measure the adjustments that are done relative to the colour levels in the original image (anonymously) for millions of images to improve the ability to predict adjustments needed. Not that I want the software doing anything for me, but it could see patterns in what I am doing to multiple images and provide intuitive sliders that will add more/less of its predicted changes.

The current controls certainly do the job, temperature, tint, highlights shadows etc. But this kind of control is effective when adjusting a small number of images spending some time on each image. When I have over 2,000 RAW images to process in a few days and they are all under varying artificial light, the current system is laborious and the Syncing is much too slow and cumbersome. Perhaps not enough people use Lightroom for processing hundreds/thousands of RAW files quickly but if there are, a lot could be done to make it more intuitive.
