I guess it could be easier to parse if we avoid spaces in names, but 
right now there is no such parser AFAIK anyway, so it does not matter 
much. Video-Out is not present in HDA; I did that change to make it 
consistent with "Line-Out".

I'll let Takashi have the final say about the names. But note that for 
HDA these names will not be enough, e g, we might have one "Front Mic" 
and one "Rear Mic" and need to know which one is which.
