Currently, the spec says this:

https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/audio/raw-file/tip/webaudio/specification.html#JavaScriptAudioNode-section

interface JavaScriptAudioNode : AudioNode {
  attribute EventListener onaudioprocess;

  readonly attribute long bufferSize;
}

An "onaudioprocess" property? This is not the right way to expose this.

Instead, JavaScriptAudioNode should implement EventTarget, and thus get addEventListener, removeEventListener, etc. I'd prefer it if it removed the property, but I guess there is now some legacy content and there are some misguided developers who think that approach is acceptable.

Then there should be a "audioprocess" event (or something like that).
