Audio-ISSUE-54 (MediaElementAudioSourceNode): MediaElementAudioSourceNode [Web Audio API]

http://www.w3.org/2011/audio/track/issues/54

Raised by: Philip J├Ągenstedt
On product: Web Audio API

HTMLMediaElement is integrated into Web Audio API using the MediaElementAudioSourceNode interface and createMediaElementSource. This looks like an unnecessarily complicated way of making the connection.

Suggestion:

Extend the HTML AudioTrack interface [1] with an "AudioSourceNode node" member. This allows us to use multiple audio tracks from a single HTMLMediaElement.
