I've looked in to it somewhat..

I think the realistic goal would be to have MIDI recording and playback,
but with no editing in the GUI or anything (ie just displaying an empty
region box).  You may also need to do some minor work with Jack MIDI if
you encounter problems there.

It's doable, but whoever does it is definitely going to have to put in
full time to get it done within the SoC timeframe.

I'm equally okay with working on a fully featured OSC control interface
if you really want to take on MIDI support.  As long as you get it
working that is :)
