This is acceptable behavior.

This is not a good idea. It can confuse the user if they tell it to change presets, but nothing happens.

If it were my product, I would probably have a default look recorded into every scene. This way there's always something to play back. For a dimmer, it would simply be all channels off. For an LED fixture I'd have various colors and patterns. When the user records their own scene, it records over the default looks.

I've only seen a few controllers with E1.37. I suspect we'll see more updated to support it over the next year or two.
