I don't think so.

By introducing liblilv and libsuil, and the rest of his work,
David Robillard already did a great job reducing dependencies.
Both, VST and LV2, have midi+audio IN and OUT.
The problem in the conversion process likely is the GUI,
but for applications as Pianotec, which use a cross-platform-GUI-library (juced)
that should not be difficult to handle.

That's not questionable: Linux has to be as good as possible OOTB
for media and audio to be successful, because that is a very large and important
sector, for users (pro and non-pro) (TV,DVD,games,audio,production,etc..)
IMO, the pro- and non-pro nonsense was introduced, in order to sell
trash to the masses (at a very low price, though).
For software, especially open source, we don't need that distinction,
that's my conviction at least.
Many so called "pro-user" enjoy simple and accessible interfaces,
while a "non-pro" can became "pro" quickly and any time, if he/she progresses,
requiring dedicated features then, if time passes.
There is no simple solution, but I'm convinced that good GUI
can both: offer diversity and hide complexity.
