Topic: Remote controlling Fireface 802 in class compliant mode?

When putting the Fireface 802 into class compliant mode for the use with Linux, is it somehow possible to control things like volume with the ARC USB or a hardware MIDI controller?

The MIDI features mentioned in the manual for Stand-alone mode are not available in CC mode. The ARC USB won't work as it requires TotalMix FX.

How can we control things like phantom power on Linux? Is there any protocol we can use to do this?

Re: Remote controlling Fireface 802 in class compliant mode?

Is there any possibility of introducing deeper features on the Linux side, such as Phantom power switches, a basic mixer in order to do zero latency monitoring for headphones for musicians. Could it be possible to do them by the linux community under RME control if the manufacturer's resources are not sufficient to fully support Linux systems? Or with some similar pattern, respecting RME rights?

I really like my RME products but the next time I purchase an audio interface it has to be compatible and fully controllable under Linux. Therefore it might not be an RME product I buy when that time comes.
