Max 4 (x)daw

It would be very useful and interesting if Cycling74 could follow the Max 4 Live model and apply it to other daw environments, for instance Renoise. Is something like this already under development? If not, it should be. (Maybe I've missed this on another thread?)
It seems like the M4L thing has pros & cons. On the one hand it has fostered a lot of growth & innovation in tool development. On the other hand it is limited to Ableton users. This isn't the place to discuss the problems with the latter, of which there are many, but suffice it to say that it would be great to see this model extended and applied to other workstations, which would enhance their functionality and open up lots of new ideas.
I realize that Cycling74 has gotten into bed with Ableton, and there's nothing wrong with that, I just hope you haven't gotten into a monogamous marriage for all eternity!
