Jack remains as is with whatever number of channels your audio interface
has. Pulse by default now will create the same number of channels as well.
For a 10 channel card this is over doing things. Most uses of bridging
pulse to jack only require 2 channels (or even 1 for phone work). Jack
just calls channels 1, 2 ... to whatever. Pulse names them for surround up
to 7.1 and then calls any extra aux1 etc. I do not know if pulse also
plays with the sound to add surround stuff or not. I have had one user
tell me it does... but I don't know.
Personally, I would like to see the jack source/sink treated as a device.
If the jack detect module is loaded then a device appears for it weather
jack is running or not. It should allow jack to be set up in the same way
as a card, stereo, 5.1, 7.1. Input or output only etc. Then if jack does
show up that many lines are created. It really doesn't matter if the
device jack is talking to has more or even less channels than pulse sets
