This one will vanish after the deprecation time expired.

Ok.

This one will also be removed after the deprecation time expired.
Therefore I'd prefer to not touch it now and leave it as it is,
but I will remove these with finally removing sampling_rate_{min,max}.
I will also use max(..) where suggested and repost the three, modified
patches.
Thanks for your detailed, review. It's appreciated!
