Please note, per 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-audio/2012AprJun/0144.html 
that the MediaStream Processing spec will soon be republished as a Note 
and that the group will be focussing on the Web Audio API.

The timing of your comments is good. Looking at changes to the spec 
which will make it more implementable is going to be our focus in the 
foreseeable future. See recent threads, such as 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-audio/2012AprJun/thread.html#msg141

Thanks,
