I guess we buy USB junk till someone comes out with a mini slot card?
I don't think it's a DRM thing, i think they just get tired of support calls by people who don't understand the recording mixer and they wanted to keep the recording as simple as possible I've seen people convinced that their mic port is broken just because someone changed the recording mixer to something other than mic. Still, I agree it should be available.
If you like NG Wave you might try Kristal
combined with ASIO4All drivers. I use the ASIO4All drives with soundforge and prefer them over directsound. With a little tweaking and smaller buffers I was able to get the latency under 2ms which is neglible. ASIO4All drivers bypass the windows mixer which is known to do some 'bit-mangling'.

I don't think it's located there, I think it is in the area below. It was a while ago that I found this info and I haven't messed with it for awhile. Be careful, and let me know if you ever find any registry guides for sigmatel stuff.
I think the best bet is to find another laptop using this sigmatel chipset (maybe any) that does have stereomix in the mixer and taking a close look at the registry values.
"EnableInputMonitor"=hex:01 <--- I believe this was the value I changed
