In the meantime, Windows VST support would be highly appreciated, but at the same time I understand the level of commitment required for such goal, especially since WINE already has a headstart.

Thanks. Yes, I suppose so, but for Lollipop (5.0) and newer, you might need disabling automatic routing in Developer options:

Also such device should be UAD1 or UAD2 compatible (e.g. no proprietary drivers required).
Another, more rudimentary problem with this is supplying power. In OTG mode, it's not possible to supply power for charging the phone, as long as only one port is offered.

I haven't tested the latency using softsynth yet (mainly due to limited selection of plugins available for arm), but it's in my plans.
