The current LV2 spec says that the plugin's "engine" should validate
its inputs anyway... IIRC, there is a draft/experimental extension
that allows the host to specify that it will take care of that, but I
haven't seen it used yet (and probably it should be that way until it
gets "serious enough").

However, I have no idea whether how much performance gain you would
obtain from that and/or if it allows to do stuff that you can't do

In my (admittedly limited) experience in developing LV2 plugins, it
shouldn't be much of a problem.
