Hi group,

Given how our important work on use cases and requirements will be in 
the next little while, and given that we had ended up with 4 independent 
documents about this on the wiki, I took the liberty to merge them all 
into one:
http://www.w3.org/2011/audio/wiki/Use_Cases_and_Requirements
… and create redirects from the others.

I have also started a skeleton for the use cases, listing 6 which we may 
want to develop upon.

UC 1: Video Chat
UC 2: HTML5 game with audio effects, music
UC 3: online music mixing tool
UC 4: Online radio broadcast
UC 5: writing music on the web
UC 6: playing a virtual music instrument


The next step will be to write the use cases (scenarios) and derive 
requirements (desirable features and qualities). In order to help the 
group with this work, I've started a stub of the prose for UC2 (video 
game), following the example set by the Widgets Use Cases & Requirements 
spec:

http://www.w3.org/2011/audio/wiki/Use_Cases_and_Requirements#UC_2:_HTML5_game_with_audio_effects.2C_music

The example is imperfect and will need some work, obviously, but should 
help get an idea of how the story (the use case) describes a realistic 
scenario and how a number of desirable features (from our API or a 
related API we should then identify) can be easily derived from it.


Does anyone has any objection (or proposed improvement) to this way of 
working on our UC&Rs? If not, I'd like to invite you to come forward and 
volunteer to flesh out the use cases, or add others - either completely 
different, or variants of the ones we have already.

Any question?

Cheers,
Olivier


P.S.: if noone objects, this should close ACTION-4, ACTION-6 and ACTION-8:
