The VST-per-server implementation might not, but there's no very 
compelling reason not to have multiple VSTs in a single server serving 
multiple clients.  That would be less reliable than a dssi-vst type 
service can be, but no less reliable than fst, and it should scale 
nearly as well.  It's been on my todo list for ages...
