Dear HTML Working Group,

24.1.3 says
"Note that the MP3 file will be processed as soon as the object handler 
interprets this object element declaration. It is possible to delay 
processing of an object through the use of additional values defined within 
the param element (described later). "

Nowhere later is it explained how to delay processing of an mp3 file, indeed 
I can find no indication anywhere in the specification of how this could be 

Also I do not see why MP3 files are special that an XHTML 2 document 
specifies a particular way of controlling the playback of them, please 
either use SMIL for defining the playback behaviour of audio files or more 
appropriately, simply leave it to implementations.
