No, that's quite correct.  That card uses an ICE1712 chipset, which natively supports only PCM32.  The correct 'ALSA' approach for using 16 bit data with it is to use the plug layer, something like:

	arecord -t wav -r 44100 -c 2 -f S16_LE -D plughw:1,0 bs.wav

As it happens, Rivendell natively supports 32 bit PCM, hence it can deal with this card without the need for workarounds.
