I'm in several mailing lists and in all cases it's generally frowned
upon when people use them to post links to articles. Most people
consider it spam. Also, having a discussion about features/support in
a driver is on thing, but that is not the same as having a discussion
about the nature and technical aspects of sound. If you don't
understand why those conversations are completely different and not
relevant to a drivers lack of support, I'm not sure what to tell you.

I do agree with your opinion about capability support. If the hardware
supports it, so should the software.
