Preferences - Device Settings - Limit Audio In-/Out ports to specific

I would like to limit the Audio In/Out ports to a specific number of ports rather than to choose between all Ins/Outs resp. limit it to stereo In/Out.

In other words I would like to choose from a list a first Input port to be activated and a last Input port respectively. Same feature should be implemented for the Output ports separately. That would resemble the functionality implemented in Reaper.

It woud be even more desirable if speficic Audio In/Out Ports could be actived by separate checkboxes imho.
