That's exactly the problem with early implementations of SysEx: as the devices 
of the time often did not have sufficient RAM to buffer the whole SysEx 
message, it wasn't uncommon to have SysEx write directly into the memory area, 
so when a SysEx was aborted ever which way you were left with corrupted data 
that might be hard to recover from.  Also most MIDI mergers failed to grok 
SysEx for a while, so using them together with SysEx was a bit of a gamble.
