          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Audio API

Closed per http://www.w3.org/2011/audio/track/issues/3

Raised by Jussi as “There should be a way to destroy an Audio Context. This is
especially important because the number of AudioContexts is limited, and if the
end developer is using multiple libraries that create these contexts, this will
be a problem unless the libraries have a way to get rid of the AudioContext
instance. The ideal solution would be that AudioContexts would follow basic
garbage collection rules and would be destroyed if there were no references to
it, and currently the spec doesn't actually say anything about the garbage
collection, so this is the expected behavior.”

Resolved at 16 Apr teleconference:

Resolution: close ISSUE-3 as satisfying as is, make sure we document limits in
the number of contexts - not necessarily in the spec but in some developer doc.
