My perception is that neither Jan nor Han-Wen is heavily involved in
LilyPond development at this point.  They are both certainly sources of
understanding, but there are few commits that they currently make.  And I
don't believe that they act as gatekeepers for code getting added to

I do not believe that you need to get their "blessing" before a patch will
be accepted.  I believe that if you invest the time to understand how midi
works and improve it, your changes will be welcomed by the community.

Of course, without their mentoring, the task of understanding how the midi
system works will be more challenging.  But if you're willing to do it, I
believe you will find good support for your efforts.
