fluidXtra, by Antoine Schmitt is using this interface

fluidXtra is listed in our applications page

there was a thread on January about this matter

About your question: yes, Jack MIDI provides some sequencer functionality, but 
it requires Jack audio daemon running, because it uses the Jack audio buffers 
sample count for timing. Another available MIDI sequencer for Linux is the 
ALSA Sequencer. There are some more sequencer engines for Linux and other 

Having a platform independent sequencer integrated in FluidSynth has obvious 
advantages. It is a decision of the application developers to use it, or 
something else.
