OK, this seems like a more urgent problem to address given that the
graph card is supposed to be able to support things like TDM.

...it seems like the issue here is that you're essentially trying to
define multiple cards at once in the same overlay.  TBH this feels like
you want two nested levels of overlay, with the extra layer patching the
CODEC compatible.  Or if this is mainly as an example for people you
could just pick one and use that?
