The thing here is that I prefer to use external knobs rather than
widgets on a screen. The only way to communicate in a way that works
across boundaries is midi.

As for flexibility. If we stick to the NRPN's for a moment, we could
think of them as a huge switch-board with 127*127 destinations (msb*lsb)
each capable of holding a 14bit value. Their meaning is what we want or
need them to be. To me this seems like a flexible enough starting point.

As for applying meaning to bit-patterns, that would depend on the
application. My own variables comes in multiples of 8 or 4 so that helps
in remembering what and where they are.
