MIDI to JSON conversion?

Do the Hookpad developers have some objection to a project like the one alluded to here? I haven’t asked that Twitter user why their “respect towards the hooktheory devs” prevents their releasing the script–I’m not even on Twitter–but I’m curious if this kind of thing is discouraged? Or maybe their conversion wasn’t very good? It would certainly be useful, even in rudimentary form.

I think the idea was less “Hookpad devs probably don’t want this” and more “these tabs are abominations unto the LORD not fit to be even acknowledged by the public”.
