well, from an ardour2 POV, not much, but the a3 export is only inches 
away from being totally awesome, so it would be nice to harness that 
power for real-time playouts.
a3 already allows pretty much arbitrary multichannel exports in 
different formats at the same time, the only thing it can't do (yet) is 
export different mixes, such as 5.1 plus stereo fold-down.
