* 'voice-balance'
"Note that unlike voice-volume, voice-balance does apply to cues."

Does this actually imply that I can have my TTS (text-to-speech) string  
and the preceding cue on one channel only? And that if I would want the  
cue to be placed on one side and the speech on the other side I would need  
to use generated content ::before or ::after an element and voice-balance  

My take would rather be to apply voice-balance to voice only (why would it  
be *voice-*balance? Would simply 'balance' not be more appropriate if  
refering to all sounds?) and add more control over where to place the cues  
(maybe in the form of a new property 'cue-balance'). CSS 2.0/2.1 'azimuth'  
was not nominally linked to 'voice': I don't understand why the 'voice-'  
prefix has been added if balance is not to refer to voice only.

fallen; another drop.
