That may be true, but it's far more likely to find something INconsistent, confusing and counter-intuitive.

I would likely find it impossible to adapt to your desired behavior. Every device I've ever seen, that has a mute feature (this excludes iPods and such, since they only have "zero volume"), tends to unmute when you press volume-up, as well as stepping up one from the previous volume.

Also, for an argument of why "zero volume" and "mute" should NOT be the same: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-settings-daemon/+bug/332081
