I really think that, in Jack (and LV2), it should just be mandated that
these (and all other multi-) events be shipped as one, for the same
reason that running status is forbidden: it's annoying and entirely

Optimising for a 7-bit wire should be the driver's problem, if a wire is
even involved...

Some big fancy programs will have to deal with such things anyway, but
the reality is that these events just aren't supported by most Jack/LV2
apps.  I think it's a lot more likely they would be with a normalisation

Some consider this best practice even over the wire (with the additional
safety measure of nulling controllers at the end, but we could skip
that): http://www.philrees.co.uk/nrpnq.htm
