This is just because of current implementation of SBC in pulseaudio. Why
not rather invest time to properly support SBC at high quality or allow
user to set quality / show user current quality? SBC is mandatory and
supported by all devices, aptX only by some (plus codec is proprietary).

Adding aptX codec just because SBC implementation in pulseaudio is not
so "nice" is not a good argument.
