This is a classical example of the contradiction between level-triggered 
automation (in this case, the ES automatic selection) and edge-triggered 
manual override (in this case, disabling an automatically selected ES).

At which point / in which cases should the automation cancel out the override?

It might be better to just keep audio disabled for the remaining lifetime of 
the ES output, when the user disables the sole enabled audio track. That 
should not involve any change in Adaptive, AFAIU.
