My idea has been that the instance would work like nothing happened (unless you choose to discard the whole thing) on disconnect -> reconnect. To me it seems that if two ports' that are of the same type and share the ID, they should behave exactly the same. I can't see that if they're from the same MIDIAccess they would even be a different instance. However, for isolation, it's probably better that different MIDIAccess instances don't share the same port instances, so that you can safely assume that if you get a port from a fresh MIDIAccess, no one has set any `on<eventname>` handlers on it.
