Are there issues with needing to provide a way for limits e.g., on total volume
when multiple tracks layered, or is this handled by audio equipment? Wouldn't
want combinatorial effects to create excessively loud spots. Consider users who
have audio volume higher than usual because of hearing impairment, but still we
can't allow eardrum-damaging levels to come out.
