Actually, I re-opened the issue [1] (apologies for my late arrival to  
the discussion), since it seems to be a fundamental feature of the  
API. As Ray says, JavascriptAudioNode is really a crippled second  
class citizen without proper support for AudioParam. Not sure if we're  
ready for another round of this discussion, but I really think that it  
would be a very valuable addition to the API.
