Many game developers seem to be interested in having panning support for audio
element in HTML5(references give below). This will allow programs to position
audio between left and right speakers.

May be adding something like HTMLMediaElement(audio/video).panning = 0 | 1.0 |
-1.0 would help.

-1.0 only left speaker,
+1.0 only right speaker
0.0 both speakers.
