I am pretty sure. But I cannot prove it.

AFAIK Daniel is right. Most soundcards are natively WDM-KS compliant. especially cheap ones. The only soundcard with ASIO-only driver that I saw was high-grade soundcards or integrated into controllers.

If you have a single Asio soundcard (one with a real Asio driver, not asio4all) you should use Asio, because it bypassed all windows software layers for direct access to the hardware, offering the best latency.

If we assume that only a minority of users have such a device, we can consider to change the default API.

Troubles begin when a user has an ASIO-only device and a WDM-only device. (such as an ASIO-only controller with integrated sound and the internal soundcard.
Using both needs a additionnal layer like ASIO4ALL.
