FR: Midi Filters Output Channel Different from Input Channel?

I’m doing some mental exercises while I am waiting for this to be ready for shipping, and had another question, here is my problem. I have a midi controller for my guitar that is stuck on channel 1.

So I would probably do a setup like:
Channel 1 = Midi Controller
2 = synth
3. Shurthi
4. FX rig

The problem I have is that I can easily use the user programs to map the channel 1 controls to whatever, but the only place this setup hurts me is in an app like midi delay where you can only have an input on the same channel as the one you output. Would I be the only person to benefit from being able to assign an output channel on midi filter apps like delay, arp, or scale?
