I think most modern apps use middle mouse button today for midi
connection. Laptops witch didn't have a middle mouse button often even
didn't have a midi in connection so there is nothing to loose. 
And, for that case one can provide a midi table to choose connections

A click to "go here", seems on the other hand like a bad Idea for me.

Most time you have a underling adjustment witch have a much wider range
then the screen counterpart (the controller) represent so that it is
impossible to click on a point and get the wonted value. 

But overall, a agreement about the different use cases of controller
keys will be very fine and useful for the Linux Audio World.
