I said:

If all plugs use the VPID model, then any plug can work either way, which seems like good general-purpose design. However if you also want the results to sound right, then you might indeed want the selected patch's preferred way to be able to back-propagate all the way to the controller. Don't know how, exactly One way around this is for the plug to decide it'll use the key number in the note-on as its VPID and ignore the transmitted VPID. Nothing can prevent a given plug author from doing it this way anyway. However then the ability to have two notes on the same key at the same time is lost... maybe that's OK?

To clarify/correct myself: Actually, using the key number as VPID doesn't (of course) produce 1-voice-per-string behavior , for that you need something like MIDI channels where you have 1 voice per channel and the controller sends on a separate channel for each string.
