Well, I publish some of my programs with free software licenses, so they may

At least I don't work for you.

You are wrong about another thing: the MIDI protocol is the standard to
follow, as it is defined by www.midi.org . ALSA implemented this standard long
time ago, like other frameworks did before. Linux already had MIDI APIs
following the standard long before Jack MIDI arrived bringing more
fragmentation to the (already weak) Linux ecosystem.

It is designed to subordinate MIDI messages to digital audio in real time. For
these use cases it may fit well. Pretending that it fulfills the needs of any
other use case where MIDI may be involved is only hype and propaganda.

Except one program (VMPK) that uses RtMIDI so it supports Jack MIDI, all my
other programs use ALSA sequencer for features that Jack MIDI don't provide
any facility. Of course, I may implement anything needed from scratch, but I
refuse to do so. I prefer to invest my time in other more productive tasks.
