Why does Bitwig use RawMIDI when it is only interested in the events?

Anyway, running status is part of the MIDI protocol.
This is a bug in Bitwig.

And changing this setting might introduce regressions in other programs
that rely on the size of the raw MIDI data.

The patch formatting is still broken.
