I have not read the proposal, I really should.. just out of interest.

Anyway, I see ALSA and LADSPA mentioned above and felt I should comment. 
The softsynth interface in MusE (MusE Experimental Software Synthesizer - 
M.E.S.S) used to have this layout but Werner recently changed it to a native 
I think (with emphasis on think, since I don't have the whole picture) that 
the reason was among others that this solution does not allow for faster than 
realtime execution.

I think (once again, think) MESS has QT dependencies so it would probably not 
work as a neutral format but for interested people you can check it out here:
