Not the communication, but I think Hydrogen over jack has more delay 
then directly,
but I don't know this for sure.

Also jack causes other , not jack programs like audio plugins for 
browser, to hang/stop.

I think that in the case I also like to use my normal desktop 
applications and a sequencer
I jump to alsa.

Why is jack / or an other audio layer not completely integrated like in 
windows and mac os,
so that you don't have to start al the seperate applications?
