You shouldn't be doing this, you should have actual devices for these
with appropriate capabilities for the device.  Ideally we'd even have
real drivers for these things!  For example, you're currently setting
them up as supporting continuous audio rates but both BT and baseband
devices won't do anything like that.  Even your new version which has
all the rates enabled has about the same issue.
