This is certainly a possibility, but I since I tested many 
(including unusual) layouts with ffmpeg and a receiver / 
hardware decoder and I do not remember a case where 
specifying the layout was really necessary:
Could you provide an example where it is necessary?
(except raw pcm input, of course)

There may be bug in the default behaviour that can be fixed.
