Since we are (and imho should be, for the purposes of OSC support) allowed to tweak what REAPER listens to and says - i.e. /bang/this/beat instead of /play - such flexible names would not be a good thing for an API, since others should be able to rely on it being consistent.

I haven't been following the latest API developments, but I thought the latest changes to the API were mirroring some of the OSC-related functions? It may just be a matter of time before the API catches up.
