Default Scaling non-DPI-aware VSTs is possible

Absolutely not possible, GUI resizing needs to be handled by the plugin itself.
Scaling GUI of a VST plugin can be done by Windows if the plugin is running in a host implemented as a separate non-DPI-aware executable.

As I said earlier in this thread, this is currently achievable in Reaper by choosing “Run as → Separate/Dedicated process” for specific non-DPI-aware VST plugin while running Reaper in HiDPI mode and DPI-aware plugins in Reaper’s “Native only” mode.
