This brings up a question:
Since OSC is a synthax format nothing more, there have been a list of 
implementation on the http://opensoundcontrol.org/ somewhere like TUIO [1], 
now sadly gone.

So mostly I looked at those to see if I have to invent my own Protocol using 
OSC and it is not findable for me.

Is there any compilation of OSC Protocols like TUIO or for Mixer... ?

This would be helpful.
