I don't think it should defer. It should certainly default to the
selected default input, but it should probably allow selecting whichever
source is available. You'd need to use PA to do that, or re-use some of
the code in gnome-volume-control to enumerate the sources.

The easiest, and probably the right route, would be to integrate this
into gnome-media itself, which would save you some of that work.
