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...

Yeah, seems like something that could be disabled by default (what is suggested for responding to NRPN commands anyways from what I read) in order to prevent the unexpected.

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 ?

Where are you seeing the text events you mentioned?  I did a search and it looks like this may be with MIDI files, but not necessarily MIDI event streams.  Can you confirm whether these are Sysex commands or can be used with a normal (non MIDI file) event stream?
