No, I agree with you.
  VST specifies normalised ranges, that's OK for 90% of parameters, but for
the remaining 10% it's a real pain.
 I'm thinking of things like a delay/echo, it's natural to specify delay in
milliseconds.  It's not natural to specify it as normalised (0.0 -> 1.0),
that would be very non-intuitive for the end-user.  In fact it's a real pain
where you don't want any upper limit (within reason).

I would hope *most* parameters are normalised.  As you say, it makes
interconnections much easier,  But the decision should be up to the plugin
writter based on what is most logical.
