React accordingly? We can't just go doing our own thing separately of all
the other entities involved because we're too impatient to wait for the
other entities response. Why are we trying to define a standard anyway if
we don't give a crap about what the other entities think?

Currently the native nodes are not much more than premature optimization.
If that feature will not be implemented in the workers it probably means
that it's not allowed in other parts of web either, so using it in native
nodes is a no-go too. I think we seriously need better communication with
the other groups, this is probably something we should've asked the other
groups before even starting on the Web Audio API... If it turns out that
high-priority thread workers are a no-go but it's OK for native nodes, we
can add them later, no damage done.

Anyway, I'm starting to feel like I'm fighting the windmills here. If I'm
the only one who thinks this idea is good, it's probably not very
constructive use of our time to argue about it.

Cheers,
Jussi
