You can do convolution reverb using jconv which is a
command line app of course. A more sexy GUI app will
appear some day (in fact it's ready, but I'm holding
back the release for various reasons), but you can be
100% sure it will not be an LV2 plugin.

I'm not going to waste my time writing code that depends
on N optional extensions if the chances that there will
ever be a host that supports all of them correctly is
proportional to 1/(2^N). And even less if these extensions
are defined independently, without any coordination, without
a top level design of any sort, and are sooner or later
going to interact between them in one or more of the N!
possible but unexpected and uncontrollable ways. I could
of course write the host myself as well, but if I have to
do both parts I'd define a very different plugin interface.
