First of all I don't Think there is any vst that could reproduce every possible sound that a real saxophone can. In order to get that gritty sound you are right, you have to use a lot of air, but most of all you have a lot of lip action going on to Control the reed.
As I am not a sax player, I'll take your word for it. But you're probably right. I don't think technology is there yet nor do I think it's going to be there in my lifetime.
Having said that, The Mr T is the closest I've heard. And if I thought I'd have use for 3 saxophones and the money to spend I'd get them. But, with the wind controller, that's $600 which is insane to spend to play "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" cover.
