Definitely something to be aware of. This is the kind of knowledge that falls in the realm of "Best Practices". Hopefully most RDM developers will find and read this forum at some point in their development cycle.

One related issue I've run into that we haven't discussed in this thread is how to differentiate between multi-port responders that allow the same element to be controlled by two different inputs, and a responder that uses more than one input to control different elements.

For example, if you discover a dimmer rack with two responder ports and each responder port advertises 48 sub-devices: Is it a 48-way dimmer rack that can control each dimmer from two different consoles, or is it a 96-way rack with half of the dimmers controlled by each input (or some other more complex mapping)? There's no reliable way to tell the difference.
