All things considered, if you believe you can make a Jack Mode
implementation that is
1) Generic, i e, same code shared for all codecs
2) Free from regressions for the end user never touching ALSA and just
running PulseAudio with GNOME/Unity UI. That includes all volume
controls still working, non-existing ports should not show up, etc.
3) Bug free in other ways too ;-)
4) And do this within a kernel cycle, i e, without a few broken
kernels (e g Realtek multi-IO implementation caused some regressions in
3.2 and 3.3)
...then I think you should go for it. But I would still see it as high
risk. Maybe I should help testing somehow?
Then if PulseAudio doesn't support doing the retasking by default, then
that's just something we have to work with in PulseAudio later on.
