Hello Hakon!

But why? If there is a category field and an OPTIONAL name field, what
is a logic for that? For applications, it is much more better to look
for an appropriate endpoint by a category, not by a name. For a
driver, it may be better to specify a compatible pin category but a
different name to distinguish between similar subdevices.

I see that some changes from XP to Vista are made as there were only
dumb, simplest audio devices having only microphone/line inputs and
a speaker output :(
