Though, I'd prefer "hint a control as capture/release aware" to 
"asking the host to send capture/release events", mostly because it's 
just another property of a control (ie info used when making control 
out->control in connections), rather than some special plugin/host 
interaction. (It *could* be in some hosts, but I'd rather not have it 
designed into the API.)
