Since there's no harm in asking, I decided to ask the creator of MCG if the framework would allow interactive and particles support. Here's what he had to say.

And while this is cool ... I would just prefer they kept Softimage with at least fixing bugs.

Max already has widely used and supported node based particle system with pflow, so it's a totally different story then in Softimage and Maya, where the previous system is all ppg-based.

Yes, but PFlow hasn't had a update in a long time, it's still single thread and there's some other problems.

But for me the most important would be that the system must be interactive.

Agreed, without interactivity it is huge barrier to learning.

This modifier looks very interesting for architectural visualization.

Come on... I think most ppl are expecting some level of proceduralism, and while pflow has a nodal GUI, it's just a state machine.
