Adder is clearly a mixer, which is a superclass of a connector.
Can't really categorize tee... Updating doc with Connector for tee, it
does not really matter, I can't think of a use case where an application
wants to filter the registry for elements with tee-like behaviour.
Connector is a fine name though for this type of element.

Mixer added as functional keyword, muxing is reversable with a demuxer,
mixing is not.

That's why it is not an effect. Intended behaviour of level is to
analyse the data, since level is not even able to handle different caps
on src and sinkpads, the Filter keyword can be removed.
Updated the doc in CVS with suggestions.
