This is counter-sensical. The stereo mode variable controls the interpretation 
of the audio input track. If the track changes, there are no particular 
reasons to assume that the interpretation should be the same. In fact, in most 
case, it is not.

In the unlikely event that you want a persistent setting, you can configure it 
already, like every other input parameter. There are no reasons to make a 
special snowflake out of this parameter.
