It's still a parameter a user might want to set manually if it's not
being "voltage controlled", and it's still a parameter that should be
presented sensibly in a non-modular host like a DAW or effects rack.

MIDI and OSC are more or less logistically equivalent. There are only
really two fundamentally different things here with respect to how the
plugin itself works: control via messages (MIDI/OSC) and control via
signals (voltage control).

Ingen allows the user to set each module as either polyphonic or not.
Mixing down is done wherever necessary (i.e. wherever a poly output is
connected to a mono input). I think maybe this is a bit more fine
grained than is useful though, and have considered having a single
well-defined (internal) module that mixes down as you've described, or
maybe just not allowing poly and mono in a single patch at all... Making
sure things like reverb etc. are put after the polyphonic stuff is a
user decision in either case, though.

With respect to plugins, supporting poly/multichannel would inherently
be a per-port thing, i.e. specific port(s) would be labeled as
polyphonic, or multi-channel, so I don't think such a plugin would cause
any trouble.
