You might also want to take a look at the architecture and concepts used
by GStreamer <https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/>. It is an open source
a library for constructing graphs of media-handling components. I
imagine you and the GStreamer designers were trying to solve similar
problems. Looking at their design might be an indirect kind of feedback
on your thoughts.

I imagine it did! Writing good docs is hard. Especially if they also
have to be concise. Congratulations on this accomplishment.
I'm not up for speculative reading in this area, sorry. I am trying to
get projects done, and so I mostly read to figure out the path from
where I am to whereever "done" turns out to be.
