What's probably happening is that recent versions of JACK will if necessary
modify a client's name to make it unique, while ALSA doens't because IIRC it
doesn't care about the name but identifies clients by a number that it
assigns itself.

So if you want unique names (and the same) for audio and midi, you still have
to provide them on the client's command line. OTOH, sequencers should identify
midi connections by their client number, not their name.

AMS should handle multiple patches without requiring a separate instance
for each.
