I don't see any problem with either voice or HiFi interfaces
in playback path. I think that by inserting filter widgets between
Digital and Analog Playback Mixers should be enough. That way
filters get enabled in digital bypass (as widget will be after
Digital Playback Mixer) and get disabled in analog bypass (new
widgets are before Analog Playback Mixer)

Could you please clarify why it's not that simple?

I see more problems in capture path because TXR2, TXL2 paths are
shared in voice and tdm scenarios.
