I agree. I also think that once students (in school or otherwise)
figure out how to connect things they will want to create systems that
have as few components as possible. By the time we can implement and
debug complicated systems I think we'll also prefer to spend our time
playing the simplest version over debugging a complex one.
Another matter is realtime performance; steps like OSC, no matter how 
fast, won't do the responsiveness of the overall system any good.
