Already there.  It's "midititle" though I think.

Already done.

I am not sure how common that issue is.  It's at least on the
Solton/Ketron MS80 and MS40 but they are somewhat related.  But if it is
not set at all, I think it reasonable to not send a title (likely
needing a refactoring) or possibly use the filename (most convenient for
me but not necessarily for others).
