There is a non-latching mute, it is called SUSMute and available
at Source#+18.  I think it is subject to quantization though
so to make it work like you're describing Quantize would have to be off.

A better approach would be to use InterfaceMode=In, where the feedback
jack on the back controls the input level rather than feedback level.
I should be easy to build (or buy?) a switch that electrically looks
like an expression pedal going from its minimum to maximum range, only
without the gradual sweep.

If InterfaceMode=In also changes the behavior of the MIDI controller
assigned to the FeedBkCont parameter, then you could also do this with
any momentary MIDI switch capable of sending CC on/off values.  I'm not
sure about this though, some of the text suggests that In mode only
applies to the back panel jack.
