That is not an MPlayer-feature, MPlayer just uses jack_get_ports.
Since I do not know which jack version behaves this might be better
documented in the jack documentation...
But I am of course not opposed to amending the MPlayer documentation,
particularly is someone knows if that feature always existed and
can point to the jack documentation that says what precisely is accepted
