There is definitely a spec for doing this: http://wiki.xiph.org/OggMIDI

Granted, this spec is 11 years old, so may not reflect any changes in 
thinking re ogg mappings, etc that have occured since then, but it looks 
pretty thought out.

I do also recall some software being written a long time back, like 2000 
or 2001, for doing this sort of thing.  I think it was written for a 
specific project (maybe control of lighting via MIDI?).  I think it was 
tucked away in the Xiph repository somewhere.
