I don't buy that. Only clients that need the new port type would have

As to confusion, using audio type buffers for control signals - without
any way to identify those except maybe by name - would generate a lot
more of it. But since it's the only way, I'm already doing that in two
new apps. They both use audio channels as a bundle of 16 control signals.
