It's possible to have the best of both worlds and remain close
to midi, something like:

/note_on <chan> <voice> <note> <velocity> 

When <voice> is zero, you get the standard midi behaviour:
the synth assigns a voice that is identified by <note> and
destroyed by a /note_off. When <voice> is not zero, it creates
a voice that you need to manage yourself.

I proposed something similar two years ago in a discussion
on plugin interfaces IIRC, and got badly flamed for it...
