The would break the VST3 spec of necessarily being installed exactly in that particular location and nowhere else.

It does not violate the recommended VST3 plug-in paths.  The spec does not require plug-ins be in the root of "C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3" or the recently added "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Programs\Common\VST3".

Been doing the same when I have more than a few plug-ins from a manufacturer.

Reorganizing plug-in folders makes the more simplistic plug-in menus used by some hosts much easier to work with.

My mistake; I thought the intention was to move it to a completely different folder, e.g. on a different drive with more space.

You can do that too (with some plugins).  For example, I moved all my Acustica plugins to an SSD in a external drive enclosure (that's the "VST3-Mobius" link in my screenshot above).

I took a punt on RC-20 being updated to VST3.. for $19 it was worth the risk.. and they delivered! Very happy with that purchase now 🙂
