Good to know you agree, will do that when the DVB code works.
Do you think the SplitParameter idea (placing frequency and polarization
etc. in the same DB column, ala "freq=3546|pol=v|...") is a good solution?

Understandable, but all of the changes in the patch are directly
initiated by the DVB work, the DVB code depends on it. It's similar to
the base class change which you suggested yourself, but usually less
dramatic. I removed all unrelated changes and created a separate tree,
so what you see is only DVB-related code.
I'm glad to see that you seem generally supportive of the patch.
