I would prefer 1), because 1/octave might be useful for modulation, but
just complicates matters if the task at hand is setting an oscillator to
a specific frequency.

One could even argue that oscillators should not have 1/octave ports at
all, but that there should be a plugin that takes a 1/octave modulation
input, a Hz base input and delivers a resulting Hz output. The DRY
principal applied to plugins.

Even for modulation, a plugin/infrastructure that allows the user to map
any value range to a frequency modulation range in semitones could be
far friendlier and does not necessarily need 1/octave behind the scenes.

I doubt consistency with the original plugins will matter in practice at
all. The added workload for you sucks, of course and only you can weight
that aspect of it, David.
