TTBOMK the split was done because it helped take some pressure of elmo's
shoulder. It never worked that well in the end as it rather added more
buffer effects to processing, so in the end, yes, it rather adds
bureaucracy to the whole thing.

OTOH, I'm not sure merging DAM and FD is something that will change the
frace from NM, but for sure, it's a step in the good direction.
