CC 0x06 (Data Entry) would be a good candidate for entering text,
possibly with 0x96, 0x97 (data increment, decrement) to be used as a

The backend will "know" that you are setting the text field of a node
because you immediately before have send a Non-Registered Pararameter
Number (CC 0x98 MSB, 0x99 LSB), setting the mode or destination to
whatever you have found reasonable to represent "node-name".

Problems: Attempts at midi-merge may fail. The data-entry slider cannot
be connected to two separate destinations simultaniously in any
meaningful way, other than that the last connection wins and all of the
data goes there.
