AFAIK, MIDNAM is for mapping midi parameters.

What we were discussing is simply how ardour displays the number :)

Of course you can do it via MIDNAM by assigning an octal number as
"name" for each parameter:
  <Patch Name="11" ProgramChange="0" />

and eventually collect names for each and every synth out there. Seems
the right way to go, even though it's indeed absurd in the current stage
of development.
