In the normal case the host would be e.g. the DAW which I
suppose is running on 'the main daw box', so the plugins
will run there as well - they run inside the host process,
this is not a 'jack rack' even if it looks like it.
It would be possible to make a 'jack-rack' style host
(i.e. and app that does nothing but being a plugin host),
and very probably the 'reference host' will be something
like that. But even on the same machine that would mean
extra latency, and if you go over a digital audio link
or the network even more.
The whole point of 'plugins' in contrast to e.g. standalone
Jack apps, is that they run *inside* the host.
In the current design the 'rack' (the GUI application) has
to be on the same machine as the host (the DSP part). But
you can always forward the X11 connection and have it display
where you want it.
