Where Audacity quickly hits the wall in functionality for me is in a project where I need to do simultaneous edits on more than two tracks.  <snip>

I wonder if "grouping clips" is what you're wanting to do in Audacity? Couldn't be easier to deal w/several tracks at once.
Open Audacity Help and search for 'Grouping Clips'.

I use this often with mixing two or more tracks and it speeds the workflow a bunch. I also use Multitrack on single sources when I want to apply EQ, envelopes, dynamic processing... in one pass. Handling 2+gb files is also a big advantage of Audition... that and having picked it up free when it was offered.  There are other sites offering AA3.01 for free download. Fingers crossed... The Adobe site has shut down the original 2013 activation server.

Never tried that - I'll have to check it out.  An example of what I'm talking about though is selecting multiple tracks, splitting them all at the playhead, and then drawing a fade in/out simultaneously on all tracks, or in some cases dragging the ends of one group of items from separate tracks onto the beginnings of others for a crossfade.  This is extremely easy to do in Reaper, and I imagine it is also in Audition.

^ These  might help... If they're too fuzzy I can enlarge them a bit yet.  If you can't find the tool pallet with the group button on it (pic 2), CTL-G works as well, once you've selected the tracks to tie up. The last slide might seem to suggest that the fade is applied, reversed, at the other end of the file... not so. A separate mark and apply fade is required, but it fades in the opposite direction.

Cross fades are a large piece of cake, Huge in fact.
HTH... I have more.  ;)
