I'd love to see an efficient IPC mechanism that works x-platform on all
the platforms that LV2 works on.
And then the plugin UIs - separate-applications - still need to ship the
whole stack. Also opening and closing a plugin UI will load e.g. a few
hundred MB of QT5 libs and that for every plugin GUI.

I'm tempted to state the opposite. Allowing separation is a geeky
pipedream without any real world impact.
