When you present it under the W3C HTML5 logo, named "the Web Audio API",
with icons for cross-browser support, and explain how the Webkit prefix is
needed for Webkit browsers, you'd have to forgive authors for getting the
wrong idea.

Glad to hear things are improving. Anyway, it's irrelevant now.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
