Wow, I was writing the exactly same contents of Ryoya who is the main
organizer of Web Music Developers JP.

FYI in addition, a specialist of Web MIDI in Japan has created the

Variations of MIDIappy (some items are overlapped to Ryoya's)

He has written a lot of documents <http://www.g200kg.com/index_e.html> and
has been translating W3C documents. You can see what he did in the above
URL.
