This is much much too broad a target, which will lead to an over-complicated
platform, which is not really powerfull (because there, for instance, will
be things you cannot generalize on DSP-chip platforms). 

In your opinion, would a suitable target be one where plugins couldn't
cross-compile across "host based" and "DSP based" systems, but instead there
was a well defined interface boundary to allow hosts to talk to DSP

In other words, define GMPI so all hosts assume a plugin has a GMPI
interface.  If a vendor like Universal Audio, TC, or Digidesign wants to
write DSP accelerated plugins, they need to write a GMPI proxy layer.  We
would define the proxy layer with consideration towards what DSP
accelerators might want to do.
