The "means of describing parameter sets" is a consistent question here, but
I'm a little fuzzy on how and where it fits. So far I think my thoughts have
been focused on "What do you need from the synth?", rather than how you'll
implement your controller.
The RDF libs offer a powerful range of possibilities, options and mysteries.
First figure out what you need to achieve, then go looking in there for the
best fit option. When you know what you need, it'll be there.

Absolutely agree! Starting from a very simple proposition, "How can I get
access to yoshimi's synth parameters?", the discussion has drifted toward
the question "How can I build a universal controller program to drive any
and all synths?". To be honest I think that task lies beyond the current
understanding (and talents?) of the interested parties.
Let's start simple, and along the way maybe we'll all learn something about
what's actually needed, what actually works, and what the available tools
are. An "OSC-to-function generator" sounds to me like a scary beast in the
context of a device with "universal controller" ambitions. You might need
a government license to operate it.
Suppose I managed to cobble together a version of yoshimi that dealt with
a small selection of the parameters via OSC? That'd give us both something
simple to start with, and hopefully we can learn what it takes as we go
ps, horribly medicated here, you have been warned :-)
