This brings up an important point, that a recognizer might be able to  
access a grammar (SRGS, SLM, or proprietary) directly without needing  
the browser to fetch and relay it.  That might be not only useful, but  
critical in some cases.  This implies a new requirement, something  
along the lines of "It must be possible to specify a grammar that is  
to be accessed directly by the recognition resource".
