whose responsibility is it to fire and/or play the targets defined 
with the cue-before, cue-after, cue and play-during properties? 
[note 1]

the UserAgent's native audio support, the underlying OperatingSystem 
which provides system sounds (earcons), or the assistive technology?

i am willing to concede that it is the assistive technology that 
must trigger the aural rendering mechanism, but it should be a 
backplane event, like system sounds in the windows environment, or 
the annoying embedded sound in a web document set to play in a loop
