This is not true. The channels and pan filters both support changing
settings at run-time via the AF_CONTROL_CHANNELS_ROUTING |
This functionality is just not exported to the "normal user" (and thus
untested and probably a bit buggy).
I once wrote a patch to support changing the equalizer settings via the
slave interface (searching the -dev-eng archive would help I think).
Doing this should be very similar...
IOW: It is not possible because nobody cares about it, not because it
is particularly difficult.
