Hrm, the only issue that's been raised upstream is multi-CODEC (there
are one or two other things that boil down to multi-CODEC, but nothing
else I'm aware of).  If you schedule something please announce it here,
I believe that UDS generally has arrangements for remote participation.

Note that most of the complexity explosion you'll see here is visible in
things like phones more than the sort of devices you'd run Ubuntu on
currently and much of it isn't really visible to a lot of the CPU
vendors at all since it's generally all handled off the CPU.
