Yes, there will always be missing entries in the DB. The same way as

Absolutely. I don't think anyone would suggest that we want to expose
the full alsa mixer all the time. That would be horrid. Did anyone
suggest that?


I did. But that was before I noticed that there are people who don't
want to have full control on their sound hardware, and this still
sounds weird to me.

Maybe that's because I'm an audio oriented "minority". Who knows...
I am not audio oriented, I am just a regular user who wants to be able to see youtube clips, listen to some classic music, use VoIP and maybe see a movie once in a while. And no, I could not do that using only the _defaults_ from F10. I had to spend 2 days reading docs from the PA's website, install half a dozen pav* and pa* packages and plugins, notice that none of them is useful and finally switch to alsamixer in order to be able to increase the level of the front mic (and just as in Will's case, I alsoneeded to really raise the global output level to a value which made the sound loud enough; for the first days I almost believed that my shiny new MB is broken because with the output maxed out via pavucontrol, it was barely audible. only after using alsamixer did I notice that there existed yet another knob which - surprise surprise - solved the issue)
