Sure. It may be a interesting problem to solve by the way.

Yes. We need a piece of code that builds the tail of the pipeline from a
profile and a given stream.
But, It can be presented as a single bin, black box, using ghost pads

The pads seems to be a good choice.

This one seems to be the most difficult case :)
Multiple video streams, subtitles and audio...
+ removable media source

I totally agree, but it seems possible to handle both at the same time I
