What would be the harm in a straight forward way to do this without
jumping through hoops?

I don't use a microphone, but I don't want to lose that choice in the
future.
Would you be using the microphone at the same time that you're doing the
above? It's not that you can't use the mic at all, it's just that you can't
use it while you have the other input selected, which doesn't seem to be a
problem to me.

Up near the end of that thread, is a suggestion you can test.

"You still can have microphone by setting
microphone as default "communication" device.
"

Give that a try.

As far as the hardware is concerned, the mixer works in parallel, and
can accept multiple input sources. The "what you hear" mixer input, is
the one that makes the output through the two outputs work. The "microphone"
mixer input, you'll need a way to trick the system into using it
at the same time.

The hardware is quite capable, but the software applies its own restrictions.
From a hardware perspective, there is no problem driving the same signal
through all outputs at the same time. But Windows design hasn't encouraged
that, using the built-in methods. (There was a claim that Winamp could
drive multiple outputs at the same time, as an example of an application
that added code for it.)

It's possible someone could write their own "mixer" application, and
put all the control buttons right there for you to use, such that
all the hardware capability is exposed. That would be along the
lines of a "recording studio" for example. Some of those applications
do a better job on routing.
