Thanks for closing this bug. Is there still anything that needs clarification,
anything you see that should be changed or could be improved?

To answer your question, the bitmask is only used in the caps to simplify
negotiation (handling the GstArray array in the caps was really troublesome)
and when parsing the caps you get a C array of the channel positions because
this makes it easier to handle from C (and if you look at the plugins that use
this, it allows you to transform between different channel orders, etc quite
easily in C).
