Nothing is "wrong" in doing it in mpc, but you have to remember that mpc
is just one of many clients. I'd think a lot of clients would
implement/want relative volume changing functionality (mine sure does),
so I'm not sure how worthwhile it is forcing all of them to implement it

Of course, it's pretty simple to do.
