[LAD] LV2 mono instruments recommended?

I'm currently implementing a LV2 plugin for SpectMorph, and so far I only
defined one audio port in the ttl file/source, as the output of the morphing
algorithm is just mono.
I have tested with Ardour and Qtractor. Ardour does what I'd expect: it plays
my instrument output on both channels. Qtractor however just plays my mono data
on one channel, the other is silent. Which is not what I want.
So I am considering making my LV2 instrument always stereo, and just copy the
output buffer from left to right - this is cheap, and probably not much more
expensive than what the host would need to do anyway.
Does this sound like the reasonable way to go?
