You're complaining about something completely different here.  Even if
there were a programmatic way to change the default audio device, that
wouldn't help this situation one bit, because there's still no way for
IE to bring up a dialog to choose one.

What you are describing is an application problem, not a system
problem.  The application here (IE) was too short-sighted to provide a
way to select an audio device.  Complain to the Internet Explorer team,
not to the audio team.
