Well, as a user, I would not see the sound card but the nine different input and output devices (microphones, loud speakers, earphones, whatever), thus I'd expect six different output devices offered by the OS, too. ;-)

However, there's little chance there will ever be "normal" users using our OS, hence we just have to find the way which is working best. ;-)
