I can conceive of legitimate reasons for a plugin to 
have no X's in the matrix yet still want to be launched
within the host app. For example, maybe it's sending 
high-level instructions to other plugins via a network 
interfaceor the like. It's conceptually still part of 
the DAW system, it just doesn't deal with those two 
data streams.
