For sure. But a plugin with inputs only and no outputs could be as well
( a midi recorder plugin ), or a plugin with no inputs and only outputs
( a music box without musical/audio control that plays its own without
control ).

Yes you right... But i would like to see is that all gmpi plugins are
the same "type" of plugin ( do not matter midi/audio
generator/nongenerator ), such as:

        gmpi plugin :

                input: none - audio - musical - both
                output: none - audio - musical - both

This is my point of view. But sure i can be wrong.
