The innovation is defining an API and protocol based on 3 concepts:

    tempo synchronization
    beat alignment
    phase alignment

Whatever you've done in incudine, it doesn't define an actual tempo map
that can and will be shared among applications, which was always the
sticking point for JACK to be able to do this. It isn't hard to define such
a map within the context of a single application - many apps have this.
Defining one that can be shared without people bitching about what's wrong
or what's missing is much harder.

Link sidesteps this by completely omitting it, along with the possibilities
it would make feasible.
