Thats why I change them too.
Once you get into using Alsa 9 in the mixer there is going to be a
million more controls with even weirder names like "IEC958 TTL". Now I
have no idea what that means or what its ever used for, but someone
somewhere might need it and want a more friendly name than that :)

The names come from Kernel land. For ALSA it can have any name, for OSS
I think there's only 10 names or something dumb like that. For OSS I
seem to remember that they're hard coded somewhere in the code.
