Does the typical Intel hardware expose the necessary information for
this? What to do if the hardware does not expose this information?

And in fact - if the "speaker/headphone" decision is based on the
resistance of the plugged-in thing, are you sure that all amplified
speakers have resistance drastically different from both headphones
and microphones? I don't have any amplified speakers with a 3.5 mm
jack, so can't test this myself.
