Yes.  You might run into other people using the same NRPN for their 
own nefarious purposes, though, so it would be good to have some 
way of ignoring a message that was not one of yours...

Yes yes! You could perhaps use one of the unused text_events ? 
There's text_event_08 .. text_event_0f to choose from, and you have 
all the length you want so could start with a "fluidsynth" string 
to cut down on accidents from other software with similar ideas. 
Likewise raw_meta_event, or even sequencer_specific ?

That thought has occurred to me too, not that I would ever think 
such things of course.  Especially if the firm is vanished and 
their synths are no longer used ...
