That's the idea, AFAIK.

This brings up an interesting question: Does "support control I/O"=20
imply that the actual MIDI protocol should be used in the API?

Since the MMA is in on this, one might think it would imply that, but=20
even so, MIDI is a *wire* protocol. I think having (most of) the MIDI=20
*feature set* in a new API would be cleaner, more effective and=20
easier to support for plugins and hosts alike.

(I'm strongly opposed to using wrapped MIDI messages for several=20
reasons. Ask if you want the full list. ;-)
