> The matrix is not unmaintained.

My experience was this: Some time ago, I saw the Midiman DMAN PCI was 
listed as untested. I bought one of these cards and did quite a bit 
of testing, then posted the results to alsa-devel as it says at the 
top of the matrix that this is the proper place to send corrections. 
Summary: playback worked, recording didn't (at the time).

To this day the card is still listed as untested. I appreciate that 
it's a lot of work for a volunteer, and I don't mean to criticise you 
personally. It's just with ALSA going into the mainstream kernel this 
matrix is a really crucial document, and the information that exists 
in the community is not being incorporated into it.   

I think there's a strong case for one of the Linux distributors to pay 
someone to maintain this information. At the moment, it seems none of 
them could answer the question 'will my soundcard work?', since they 
all appear to refer back to the ALSA site.
