Reason 7 Midi Out question

I see a lot of people talking on the forums about triggering the VSTs from Live (or other DAWs) using Reason when 7 gets out.

I still don't understand this, or maybe they misunderstood the R7 announcement.

Ok, so R7 brings Midi Out, which means that I can hook up a Waldorf Blofeld for example, and I can bring back the output of that to one of my audio interface's channel into Reason, so far so good.

But the question is: how will you trigger Ableton's hosted VSTs? I can think of 2 ways:

1. using 2 interfaces, one which will output the MIDI from Reason, while the other receives it and monitors in Ableton
2. using a virtual midi port -- however I don't know any 64-bit compatible ones; also, a lot of people agree that they have horrible latency problems

So... what's another method? Or did people misunderstand that Midi Out is not the same as Reason as ReWire Master?

Thanks!
