Does Scale mode in MIDI editor only work globally, or can it be switched to Local somehow?

I'm trying out the scale option in the MIDI editor to keep the MIDI notes I've got to only play in B major. Pretty simple and effective for the track I want it on.

The problem is that it is then turned on for all other midi tracks! I have midi on another track that plays a lead part, which occasionally uses accidentals outside the B major scale, but these get muted. Not what I want. 

Surely this should be on a track basis, and not a MIDI wide setting. Am I missing a switch somewhere? Can anyone else confirm this work method? Any tips welcome.

Thankfully I'm using audio samples for the drums, otherwise that would also be affected.

The scale function can't be switched to local.

I'd like to ask it as a feature request, then. Or must I do that somewhere else?
