(Non-daw claims to have unlimited 'go-back', but I've not tested this).
You also want to be able to correct a track with a portion which is just
a bit too quiet or a bit too loud, without editing the waves themselves.
I would say not altering the original waves is most important, to me.
Apart from that, even simple song fade-outs are impossible without
automation, unless you like to do everything by hand, 'live' as the
song is playing.
There are many cases where automation is required even in the simplest
of songs. If none of the linux mid/audio apps had automation, I would
certainly have given up! I would not have been able to produce
my songs without it.
