MIDI Mapping on Effect Parameters lost on Init preset

Hey all, I’m working with various Inst. Automation presets and controlling the parameters via MIDI Mapped inputs from a MIDI Controller, and doing this lets me quickly switch which operators I’m working on for FM Synthesis in a VSTi.

This is super convenient to help me hone in the sound I’m trying to make but if I accidentally cycle through my presets it will wrap back around to the “Init” default preset, doing this completely clears my MIDI mapping. Is there any way I can remove the Init preset from the list? Init clearing MIDI mappings seems like something I’d want as an option, especially since you cannot export DSP parameter MIDI mappings and you can already clear MIDI Mappings elsewhere!
