That is a great idea! Would you mind filing a feature request in the
tracker, so that it won't be forgotten?

It's only recording when using a larger bit-depth is handy (don't worry
about head-room and S/N, just record an -30dBFS or even below).
Increasing the bit-depth of existing audio files on disk has no benefit.
