Musical instruments

This is about how pipe organs work, and I'm left with a couple of questions. Has anyone looked at pipe organs from the angle of user interface design? Until I listened to the video, I didn't notice the obvious fact that the instrument settings on a pipe organ are based on the instruments (flute, bagpipe, trumpet, etc.) which were available locally-- in this case, northern Germany-- when pipe organs were being developed. Are there any pipe organs which have a worldwide range of instrument settings?
