For MIDI I'd agree - given the limited 0..127 range, mapping 
to the actual parameter value can be done only at the receiving

For OSC I'm not that sure. The controlling source doesn't
have to be a human adjusting the value by being able to hear
the result (and hence not needing any numerical value).
I'd retain the gaindB option as without that it's impossible
to set a defined gain. 



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
