I plan to write a tool to generate such a thing, but havn't done so yet.
It will use data based on the host-info extension to automatically
correlate host implementations with what plugins implement.
There is a big difference between released extensions and unreleased
extensions, hence the massive red EXPERIMENTAL labels. URID is
released, Atom is not. To my knowledge nobody is using atom:ValuePort
yet in anything that works. This area of the extension needs work, its
current use is mainly in the atom types, not the ports.
I forgot Ingen didn't support URID yet. I will do so soon.

Jalv is intended to be a minimal host appropriate for this, since one is
lacking, but it is not yet released either. It will be when the
state/preset implementation is finished.
