If you're writing for yourself only, no one can argue with that; but I
was talking about public-facing apps, in which case standardizing on a
single MIDI protocol helps users (and the ecosystem in general).

I've always thought that Jack MIDI is easier to program and provides
better jitter guarantees, but you may see things differently.

It would be interesting to know which use cases you are encountering?
