>From the “Review of Web Audio Processing: Use Cases and Requirements”
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-audio/2012AprJun/0852.html

Need a requirement that audio controls not affect system audio settings i.e.,
should have impact just for audio under control of the Web application. For
instance, it would be highly problematic if a "mute" in
the Web application muted all system audio. If other requirements mean system
audio will be controllable from Web applications (this is not clear to me one
way or the other right now), then instead the requirement is that users have an
easy way to control whether to allow system audio settings to be impacted by
in-application changes (e.g., via a user preference option in user agent).
