What about this one:

4. What is GMPI's benefit for it's users and/or developers?

GMPI is intended to define a plugin format that provides means to

a) be able to sit on top of existing semi-proprietary standards (VST, DX, TDM, RTAS etc) to allow for a single, easy to maintain codebase (i.e. compatibility level)

b) extends those formats by means of a modern architecture when implemented fully in host applications (i.e. native level)

to aim a destinct target namely

c) to solve the problems arising from the current format jungle

d) to be _the_ reference platform for an intended transitional phase until GMPI hopefully establishes like once MIDI did

I don't see this as a strict design goal, but merely as a kind of emphasize of a spirit
