Why has the volume level property been replaced with 'gain'?

In camtasia 2 there was a simple volume/levels property, like you would expect in other video editing software. This was tied to any audio keyframes you set. 

Now this has been replaced with 'gain'. and actual volume/levels are controlled by clicking and dragging on clips in the timeline. 

This is incredibly frustrating when I want to set a number of different clips to the same volume and I need to go through every single clip on the timeline trying to very carefully drag the volume to the level I want, instead of being able to type, or paste in the value. 

Why did this change? 
Why not have an volume property that's actually tied to the volume key frames?
Why should we only be able to change volume by clicking and dragging? 

Can we have the volume property back?

If you want to make multiple clips louder you can select them all, and then increase the gain.  The end result is the same as what would happen when adjusting the volume slider in Camtasia 2.
