We're always open to having new developers come and contribute to LilyPond.

The original team was (as has been mentioned) heavily focused on creating
printed scores, so midi output was just included for "proof-listening",
and generating high-quality midi was not a concern.

A few years in to the development, was developed to help in
automatic generation of robotic music, IIRC.

You're not alone in wishing we had better midi output; users have
requested it multiple times.

If you're willing to jump in and develop better output, we'd love to have
you do so.

invest time and show that the new way is sane.  SO if we complain about
some of your initial attempts, please don't think we're trying to shut you
out.  I promise you, we're not.

I think that you could get some history by searching the issues list for
