is already covered in that same section:

12.  Enumeration (Creation, Discovery, etc.)
   d. different levels of creation (just enough for host to
      inquire about properties plus another level to prepare
      resources for audio processing  [for more efficient
      scanning, and other issues], or only one simply level
      of creation)
   e. defined rules for plugin behavior at each creation
      stage. For instance, no user interface allowed during
      capability queries.
