Default activating tracks via Midi

Hi experts,

Is it possible to activate / deactivate tracks (including the embedded VSTs) via Midi "Program Change" messages (e.g. according to a list defining which tracks to be activate with any selected program) ?

With that, (ab)using Reaper as a VST host for live performance would be a really good option.

If such feature is not included in Reaper itself, maybe a Midi-only VST plugin could do the job, provided Reaper offers an API to allow a VST to enable/disable tracks (e.g. modify the Midi and Audio Routing appropriately and (optionally) power on/off the VSTs of a track.
