I was sympathetic to that, but it may not compatible with playing elements
that aren't in the document. And Jonas was arguing that it's lower overhead
to not create a presentation for <audio> elements, although I think that's a
very minor issue. I don't recall who else was pushing audibility of
display:none elements.

denarii, and the other fifty. Neither of them had the money to pay him back,
so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?"
Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You
have judged correctly," Jesus said. [Luke 7:41-43]
