Use real intensity whenever possible in fixture libs if there is a real dimmer channel

Can we please use in RGBXXXXX-fixtures that have a real intensity channel also use this and not virtual intensity or fixed to 255.
I know where it comes from, but really the minority of users uses I Red U Green etc. so mutexing is not an issue.
And with multicell fixtures where the masterpart has also an intensity this makes cloneing impossible as you loose intensity infos.
Or that you cant run another intensity-effect from the master intrensity on top of an effect or pixelmap on the cells.
I had several support calls during the last weeks re. this issue.
So please revise the libs so that we have a real intesity channel whenever its there. Also lot of manufactures have adapted there internal masterdimmer curves for smooth dimming via the master channel.

    It also introduces problems with changing type. Practically no one uses I-red etc, yet we’re losing vital functionality.

    It would be so handy if you could use the virtual intensities of multipart rgbxxx cells together with the real intensity of the beam or master fixture. Running intensity effects over the fixtures dimmer and then be able to choose with the virtual dimmers of the cells on which cells this effects is applied on the fly would be so awesome with my multipart moving washers.
    So +1000 from me. :)
