In my example .h2kit I did mark three hihat instruments - closed, pedal  
and open.  With any luck their correct.  In my example ogg I managed to  
use all three and most of the rest of the kit at some point aswell, and I  
think it sounds like an open hat.  The pedal hat automatically mutes what  
I called the open hat as well.

So I think as it stands, closed, pedal (and a pedal splash if you up it's  
velocity) and fully-open are available.  Maybe in a pinch a combination of  
them (closed and low-velocity open for instance) could approximate a  
semi-open hat, but no, there is no semi-open sound.
