I do not know if VLC does sampling, coding, and mixing properly when more
than one input has an active audio track in the same instance. Even then,
the user may want different settings for different inputs - this is
self-evident if you have more than one video in the same browser page for
instance. Also, the audio output back-end might apply a different policy to
different VLC inputs (although I admit this is still nascent in PulseAudio,
and absent in VLC).

In other words, I think re-using the same audio output across different
"input parents" would be wrong.
