            Bug ID: 20506
           Summary: Do we need MIDIOutput and MIDIInput?
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: AudioWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: MIDI API

I'm wondering if we really need MIDIOutput and MIDinput to extend MIDIPort. It
seems like a bit of overkill to have to add two more additional interfaces to
the platform when all that is being added is "onmessage" and on "send()" by
each interface respectively. Additionally, the "type" attribute of MIDIPort is
already restricted to "input" or "output", hence it feels redundant to have a
whole new interface to determine the type of an object (which is already part
of the base class).

I recommend just folding MIDIPOutput and MIDIIntput back onto MIDIPort. An port
of type input simply does noting when send() is invoked, and MIDIPort of type
output does not receive message events.

Is there a particular use case I'm missing that is not already covered?
