http://www.w3.org/2011/audio/track/issues/15

Raised by: Jer Noble
On product: Web Audio API

On the mailing list, Jer Noble proposed an addition to the WebAudio API which would allow the API to be implemented on platforms which allow exclusive access to audio hardware.

The proposed changes:

* Add the AudioContext.startRendering() method to the spec.
* Add a new AudioContext.renderState property to the spec.
  + Values:
    - RENDERING
    - INTERRUPTED
    - IDLE

Chris Rogers questioned why the startRendering() method was necessary:
