I have added the property midi:binding, i.e.
http://lv2plug.in/ns/ext/midi#binding , to the MIDI extension.  As far
as specs go, this is all that is required.

It is not documented online yet because the docs are not uploaded until
release, but it is in svn and you can build those docs if you want, but
essentially they boil down to the example:

port midi:binding [
    a midi:Controller ;
    midi:controllerNumber 17
] .

Have fun.
