[alsa-devel] Clarrification about the alsa volume init framework.

So I am looking at cleaning up Ubuntu's collection of volume init db data originally set up in Ubuntu's/Debian old big init script. The switch has already been made to the new init system, and any existing settings were migrated from our old init script to the new system, however this is somewhat unclean.

Is my understanding correct in that the new volume init system was designed to have quirks for hardware that needs particular volume settings? If so, how would upstream like these to be submitted, and would you want to have several dozen or more quirk files in the init db for different hardware? 
Thanks in advance.
