Is that a polite invitation to go fix it myself? ;-)

I know that qtractor does jack-transport, but unfortunately that doesn't 
help me since Pd is the client that I use, which has no (built-in) 
jack-transport support whatsoever. There might be a Pd external 
implementing that kind of thing, but my application needs to run in 
environments where just the vanilla Pd might be installed, so I wouldn't 
want it to depend on some obscure 3rd party plugin if I can avoid it.

jackctlmmc / qjackmcc goes the wrong way round, it's an ALSA MMC slave 
that drives jack-transport. I'd need exactly the opposite. :) I've been 
googling for that kind of thing, but there doesn't seem to be any (apart 
from other full-blown sequencer/HDR applications).

So, in the light of these observations, it still seems worthwhile to 
have better MMC support in Qtractor. Do you have any plans to work on 
this some time?
