We might be better off splitting the local only, coding format
related, from the QoS that goes over the air, afaik one don't have to
reprogram the coding format for every connection, or perhpas Im
confusing with how ISO commands works in this regard.

Does that assumes that we can only have one local codec active at
time? How about 2 devices connected, one using CVSD and another mSBC?
If we can't configure the hardware codecs on a per connection basis
then chances are this won't be that useful for things like a desktop
environment as in order to support multiple devices connecting, with
or without wideband speech, we would have to switch to sofware
enconding/deconding, but perhaps Im wrong and it indeed possible but I
doubt that because HW encoding/decoding normally use dedicated DSP and
I don't think that would be able to deal with different codecs in
parallel, which means that in order to use HW encoding/decoding we
would have to artificially limit the number of SCO connection to 1 to
avoid random drop outs when using HW codecs.
