Would you add something that could be the tone control of a hifi amp
into a mixer channel for audio production?

I would use Fons' parametric EQ for the mixer channels, but avoid
DJ EQ. I won't sort out DJ EQ, but while Fons' EQ should be a
dependency of a meta-package "pro-audio", DJ EQ should belong to a
meta-package "audio". Some EQs likely would fail measurements. I can't
do measurements, but I suspect we hear when EQs behave unexpected when
mixing. I wouldn't sort them out, as long as they don't do something
harmful as making a host crash, but I would sort them to a meta-package
"audio" instead of "pro-audio". Perhaps the plugins that belong to
different meta-packages should be installed to different paths, so that
a user could install all packages, but by selecting the path decide if
they show up in a host. I fear that some packages already bundle useful
and crappy plugins, so assigning packages to meta-packages might not be
enough. Some packages perhaps need to be split into "good" and "bad"
