I wonder if we should have a different UC&Req document for the MIDI API.
Depends on how much overlap there is, I guess.

Anyway, I think it would be extremely useful if someone else could write
the use cases and requirements for the MIDI API, not least because I'm
completely snowed in right now, but mainly because I think other people's
use cases and requirements might raise good new scenarios I've overlooked
that are either too complicated or impossible (I doubt that one though) to
achieve with the proposed API. It would also help me with making code
examples and such.

I currently have a test suite for the API in the works so that as soon as
we have an implementation we can test it (to the extent that it's
possible). I'm also planning to make an experimental build of Firefox or
Chromium to support the API if I can only find the time.

Cheers,
Jussi
