I don't know if there's currently a "need". It's entirely up to the MDX
community. I don't feel like there's enough critical mass yet. If you
look at unmanaged DX, there are scores of higher up-level API -- of
course unmanaged DX has amassed many more followers.
Regarding performance loss, I don't think you'd notice that significant
of a performance difference. If you have:
C# code -> MDX -> DX
it's very similar to:
C# code -> Your API -> MDX -> DX
I'd bet there won't even be any difference.
