Default AudioIn Wakelock with Google Now Everywhere

Is this a necessay biproduct of always on listening? I have Google Now Everywhere enabled for all screens except the lockscreen. I did this in part for security and in part because CloudyG3 now supports full knock code for the vs980. The following screen shots were this morning after about 7 hours of idle screen off time (overnight). I do have high accuracy enabled in location with both reporting options enabled. I also have the Disable Services app but froze it just to see what would happen to battery life and what wakelocks appear. Basically I like Google Now a lot and want to use it to its fullest... yet at the same time I want to see what can be done to minimize the impact on battery life. What do yiu guys think?

It's not considered wakelock if the program is always running, as you have requested.
