As far as I see Web Audio doesn't actually specify the effects in any
way, I mean the algorithms, so having two implementations to do the
same thing would be more than lucky. That is not, IMO, something we
should expose to the web, at least not in the audio/media core API.

Could there perhaps be separate a spec, something like "Game Audio 
Effects API" which would define the APIs for the effects so that there 
wasn't need to define algorithms exactly.
(For any kind of serious music production unreliable effects are no-go.)
Those APIs would then use MediaStreams or extend AudioNodes, whichever
core API is chosen.
