I don't think that you are missing anything. I think that
emms-player-mpd.el just doesn't know about consume. You can send in a
patch to fix this (... using something less dramatic than calling
-connect each track) or you can wait for me to have a go. I personally
don't use mpd at all, but I keep an mpd server running in the house to
debug Emms stuff, so I should be able to figure it out eventually.

If you are going to take this on, please ping the mailing list so that I
know if I should be adding this to my TODO.
