UCM definitely helps at runtime but in an ideal world we'd still have
the nice pointy clicky tools that provide a beautiful GUI visualising
the system audio setup so people could use those when configuring the
setup for UCM.

I can see us still needing something dynamic for things like tunneled
audio streams where you're likely to have them being instantiated
dynamically (with associated control), you'd want UCM to be able to work
with this to tell the application about how these should be joined up to
the rest of the system and so on.
