Well I don't want to ask too much, since some things that from the view of an enduser like me seem like a small feature but they require a ton of work from the programmers. I am guessing that there is still a load of tasks with a higher priority, that I dont want to distract from

It's more fundamental than that, in that you can programatically create virtual MIDI input or output devices on macOS and Linux, but I've never sussed how to do this on Windows. Although... one of those pages to which you've linked suggest that it is possible. Needs further investigation by me, I think.
On Windows, I use loopMIDI for creating virtual MIDI ports: https://www.tobias-erichsen.de/software/loopmidi.html

I use this for routing TidalCycles to my DAWs.

Thank you! That is interesting, and I'm pleased to be proven wrong, in that it looks possible to create ad-hoc MIDI devices on Windows then. I'll try it for myself, then.

Feature Request: Detachable Units

As things get more in-depth, managing and switching through the different units of architect becomes more chaotic. It would be of much help, If there was the option to detach these units from the main application. That way I could display lets say the mixer area on a separate workspace while I have also two separate windows, displaying different internal parts of 2 macros.

Especially useful on the panel when Architect wants to become the central organizing system of an audio setup.
The more GUI elements there are, the more difficult it gets to intuitively operate.

Sure! Allowing more than 2 simultaneous windows, and better navigation to quickly specify the content of said windows, are two things that a sizeable amount of people have already asked for. I believe this will also encompass what wanting.

Great news, it was probably mentioned in the main release topic but as this one has already a lot of posts im not following completely since that discussion had been going on much before found out about the program.
But I am guessing that it is still a good practice to post it in the feature request thread. Like when you write down something in a note book. Doesnt mean that it is written in stone but at least it stands somewhere where youll find it ^^

That's great, thanks. The majority of requests come via email anyway, so I really don't expect people to have to hunt through the forums to see if a request has already been made. It takes only a few seconds for me to acknowledge the (re)request and to perhaps paste a few notes into my own internal issue tracker, so the more requests the merrier, as far as I am concerned.
