There are no easy solutions, something will always break in some situation in some host. You will just need to be aware of that happening and try to fix things as they appear. It's not realistic to plan to release just one version of a plugin that will work for everybody. (And keep on working, operating system and host updates may always break things again in the future.) For example the VST2 plugin format was never planned by Steinberg to work like that for developers. The specification is pretty vague and things have "just kind of mostly worked". VST3 isn't necessarily much better in that regard, the plugin frameworks like JUCE and IPlug and the hosts will always end up doing things in incompatible ways.
