New crossfading - why time and not volume based?

Hi, just saw that the Iriver crossfading now has extra options.
Still it depends on time and not on the volume of the songs played.
So if you play a mixture of songs with different kinds of endings, every
selection is a huge compromise.
Couldn't crossfade work more like the archos recorder trigger, where you
can define a trigger volume and duration that would then trigger a fade?
You'd also set a check time, so that in my example only the last
seconds of each track would be checked for the fade.
I use a similar way of crossfading on my PC (the free winamp plugin
SqrSoft Advanced Crossfading) and the results are pretty
Here me setting are:
- Start checking 16 seconds at the track end
- Start "crossfade" when playing track is below -15db (for second or so)
- Mix (don't fade)
