I think this would theoretically work, but it requires creating and
maintaining a database of all sound cards. And if a card is not in the
database, there still has to be a default behavior. ;-)
Perhaps an entry could be added to the .asoundrc or asound.state file
that sets this. Although the main time this is of import is the first
time a sound card is used, so there would have to be a default entry
:-). After that it retains its previous state and is not as important.
It looks like mute is a reasonable compromise, except for blind users.
