All of that would definitely be very nice to have, but I'm not sure if OSS 
currently provides the facilities to do that a generic way - I'm cc'ing Dev 
Mazumdar of 4front who probably will know better.

If there isn't a generic way to do this, the only alternative would probably 
be to write custom mixer applications for each device - or extend the 
mixer(1) utilitiy in the base system to support some sort of driver profiles.
