It feels like the problem here is that for whatever reason (I'm not sure
what?) you're trying to come up with verbs for links that are currently
disconnected - in ASoC we just say we've got paths that exist and then
we talk about the paths that are connected. Verbing everything makes it
all sound active which is confusing when you're talking about links that
are idle.
