Hi Christoph,

Thanks for your input for the Games use case / scenario. I am trying to

Agreed. We have a stub for spatialisation effects in the document. Need

Sounds reasonable. I've added a stub in the requirement document about 
it. Curious to hear more from the group about how to tackle this.

Added a stub for this, too.
