Oh Yeh, like the sfz mini-host or the hypersonic stand-alone, I meant in regards to you can host vst's in other apps that they weren't specifically designed for like stealing sonar 8 goodies to work in sonar versions earlier.
This is what I've done.By the way, I'm making nice progress on a sd3 hsc and a wineyes set, won't probably be as nice as yours but a useable set to get started with.
When I toss it out, feel free to improve on it, your the undisputed kings of hsc creation 'grin'.

For example, there's a stand-alone version of Rapture, SFZ and DR-008. These are all executables.

They're all stand alone in that regard. Usually consisting of just a dll and sample content and help files if relevant, and they just need to be registered with whatever app your using for your daw.
