I think that's right. It originally came from Eric's post in September:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xg-htmlspeech/2010Sep/0015.html 

In that context, it seems to be about a specific style of application that could be built with the API, rather than the API itself.  So I agree it's out of scope.

Ok, if R19 is about those, also then it is out of scope.
