I do think that the 'multi' version of Yoshimi LV2 is usable if the host 
(e.g. like Arodur) supports a MIDI bus (or similar concept) and can see 
the use case for it.
One of the key advantages IMHO of using it as a plug-in is that if you 
are in a production scenario (i.e. non-live) you can then 'export' the 
final piece/result directly as an audio file.

Indeed using the 'jack paradigm' does mitigate this (and potentially 
makes the work environment more flexible and modular which is good from 
various points of view). I actually wonder how feasible it would be to 
have an application-independent to-file jack 'sink' able to generate an 
audio file of all connected audio inputs (but including midi) -  and yes 
sorry I derailed a bit there, but the topic mentions synths so... :)
