Mark, do you have any opinion on this? IIRC you've been advocating for 
keeping e g headset jacks as one entity, but my memory might fail me.

Also does it have any implication on the pending UCM patches?

For desktops / HDA, we only have single-direction ports so far, and I 
don't see that changing in the foreseeable future, so not much to worry 
about there.
