The thing with 1/8" is that it's a common so it would be convenient in cases where you don't need adapters because both devices have 1/8" MIDI I/O.... I can even imagine Euro-modules taking advantage of that. I'll guess it's cheaper than mini DIN too.

Anyway, problem right now is that there's growing need for a form of micro/mini MIDI connection but no standard being officially agreed upon, at least as far as I'm aware, and that's messy.
I think the appropriate thing is to rage against mini plugs of all kinds!

Roland Boutique: Full sized MIDI and mini audio
Yamaha Reface: Full sized audio and mini MIDI
Waldorf:Full Sized audio and MID, but USB power (arrgh!)
