Hey Robert,

HTML5 Appcache offline caching sounds good, if this is defining that audio and video data is to be cached in an offline cache.

The HTML audio element would certainly be enough to meet our current demands. Implementations are broken, incomplete or perform too bad. We have yet to discover a single browser without audio issues.

Our focus is very much real world problems right now - we want to be able

in on future sound specs, but to me, it's very clear we need tighter
control on device dependent implementations - I.e., a explicit section on
media caching ("This spec is only 100% implemented when audio media is
properly cached in cache manifests").

You mean the HTML5 Appcache offline caching?

It sounds like the HTML audio element would be enough for your needs. Is it? Are the implementations adequate?
