You can do that right now (alsa_in/out or zita-ajbridge) but it will move you 
into the realm of clocks drift. It might not matter that much depending on your 
use case but you said "sampling rate when I'm doing pro audio work". It might 
not be that pro audio anymore. I have not tested pipewire but I can't imagine 
that pipewire and multiple cards would be any better in that respect.

For solution with multiple cards have a look at:

And a discussion:

I tested the alsa_in/alsa_out solution a few years ago out of sheer curiosity 
and it worked, but I would not trust it for an important live recording.
