This might be a lack of knowledge from my side about stream moving.

What I understood from the code (specially from the bluetooth module)
is that the modules needed to report the core that something should be
done with these streams, and then routing policies would apply
(possibly implemented in some other policy module).

An example would be some audio being played to a bluetooth headset. If
the module gets disconnected, the stream would need to be routed
somewhere else.

If this is automatically handled by PA without this code, then I agree
with your reply to patch 08/16, and the code should be removed.
