Then show me a testcase where it's not a plugin issue.

See, now you're saying that CSS is controlling the sound of your plugin.
This is not the case. The W3C specifications do not say whether the plugin
provides sound or does not provide sound. The W3C does not standardize
plugins. The CSS specifications talk about whether the 'play-during'
property provides sound, and you can override /that/ in a user style sheet,
but this is not relevant to the test cases you have posted here.
