That makes sense (kind of) for Network Settings because there's a degree of mutual interdependence between the settings — although I'd still prefer no "apply" (iOS doesn't have one for example).

But in the case of audio / MIDI prefs the settings are independent once you've selected driver and device, so users explicitly wanting _not_ to apply a setting immediately seems like an unlikely corner case to me.
