Well, I've seen a couple cases where a dummy codec /is/ the proper 
driver and all that's needed is to restrict the formats that the DAI 
supports (sample rate, etc).

Yes, we can always write a board-specific dummy codec with the 
restricted formats -- but since there's already one in ASoC, why not 
make it extensible?
