Maybe just by letting the user choose one from a list in the host
like MIDI inputs?  The host doesn't have to show a plug-in all the
available tempo maps.  Though some plug-ins might have a preference
for the global tempo map or the most local one, and maybe some 
strange plug-ins will want to read more than one tempo map at once.


(I should have used some other term than "tempo map" here and in
my last email - to me "tempo map" describes the whole song, whereas
I'm thinking of a VST-like stream of "musical time info" which is
ephemeral and is only valid for the current audio buffer).
