If the underlying implementation is handling running status, then why does it
matter?

Yamaha's request was that short MIDIMessages be complete messages - i.e., that
they not require additional state to be maintained from message to message
(aside from long messages that could be broken in multiple parts; they weren't
happy about that, but were okay with it.)  That seems like a logical request;
and with your current system, what does the Windows/Mac API give you for your
drum computer?
