If I'm understanding correctly, do you essentially mean I could record to an audio track in DP with it set to record from another DAW/sequencer that's playing the MIDI file? I like this idea, but if I open a secondary DAW to run in ReWire mode, it'll match the DP project tempo. Or am I not following at all?

A LONG time ago, I remember taking a sequence that I needed to put into DP (from a keyboard workstation that could not export SMFs)-- and I enabled multi-record in DP and hit record. I did slave the external sequencer. However, if you were going to run it from an internal-but-separate sequencer, to solve your particular problem, you probably would want to sync them with smpte but not MIDI clocks. You'd also need patch the MIDI output of the one app into the MIDI ins of DP. Sounds like the other options people are suggesting would be easier.
