I think automating a task that annoys you is worth the trouble.  You
could at least start with something like the following, and flesh it out
to include drawer notes and check lists.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun gjg/org-reset-todo ()
  "reset any task from point onward with a TODO keyword to
initial TODO state. Show all trees you want to reset before
running this command: hidden trees will not be touched"
    (while (not (eobp))
      (outline-next-visible-heading 1)
      (if  (org-get-todo-state)
	  (org-todo "TODO")))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
