Except that it has the same issues as now (you may forget to select the 'auto' entry as you forgot to manually select the right entry).

The problem with that is that it implements an invisible feature. The user cannot determine what account is being used unless he consults the SIP traces or he memorizes all the rules and keeps them in his head all the time. Even then he can only guess what account is being used. And if you make an error when you add a rule, you will never notice it until you inspect the SIP traces.
