They are almost completely unnecessary plugins... that you would only use in cases that you would only really use along side a real SSL mixing desk for mixing purposes of stems, or live recording.

With music production, there are no hard and fast rules but recommendations based on one's experience...

If you're new to music production, it's far more important to learn how to mix, than what extra layers you can add on top that can complicate things.
My method is totally different than yours. First off l never go over 40 tracks and l don't see the nightmare you're talking about eith using Reason.
I print what l need to the tracks i.e. Reverbs, compression etc.
I do understand your point.
