IMHO auto-ortho or auto-persp are hacks. UIs should not try to think for users or anticipate on what you think might be expected. Keep things simple and atomic and in control. If that means you sometimes have to press an extra key that's at least predictable, and much less irritating than a UI that suddenly thinks you want something - whilst you didn't want it.
