The only apparent alternative is to do what our app has to do now, namely check the user-agent string to see if the OS is Android, and impose a fixed hardcoded time correction to AudioContext.currentTime for the purposes of understanding what the user is currently hearing.

I think the idea of the application being able to know what is currently playing is pretty fundamental. But I don't want to belabor the point, knowing that so many other fundamentals also need to be implemented -- I just want to clarify why this matters.
