I'm not sure I understand.  What happens if you try to use more than 
one?  It should be possible.

We could query them on demand, yes.  I think most hosts would probably 
request them upfront anyway, so it might not be worth it, but there's 
probably no harm.  If I remember aright, VST requires you to select a 
preset in order to query its name, which is why it's so slow.  I'm 
probably forgetting something though.
