Overlay for pads?

I would like a nice compact way to select and indicate one of two states. The Pad object is great in that if it’s set to toggle mode, it’s either highlighted or dim. However, I was surprised to find there’s no overlay available for a pad.

To me, that would be a natural fit for things like On/Off, Active/Bypass, HighPass/LowPass, or whatever.

That would eliminate the need for embedding the two choices in the name below the pad and make it very clear to the user what has been selected.

I’m doing it now with a fader set to a 0 → 1 range with an overlay, but the Pad object is the correct construct to use in this situation.
