You're right, it wasn't random. And I agree about the over-extension of MIDI. I looked at the
list of assigned IDs and picked 7F because it wasn't assigned to a specific organization so I knew
it wouldn't collide with stuff I already own (the list I read may have included what you said - but
I can't recall). However, I didn't do complete research to discover what Neil posted about Real
Time Universal System Exclusive Messages - and honestly I wouldn't have cared since I don't do any
of that and at the time had no intention of selling anything.

Interesting perspective. I wonder if there are possible legal complications?
