Yet we are making them a part of the framework so that they can't be used
for other applications than audio or even all applications of audio (think
completely custom code, for example defining a new language for audio
processing built on the web, or porting the existing ones, they wouldn't be
able to present powerful primitive functions for convolution or FFT even
when the native implementations already exist in the browser). These aren't
useful tools just for audio.
