>From the “Review of Web Audio Processing: Use Cases and Requirements”

Need a requirement that audio from the Web application not interfere
with system sounds (e.g., alerts), which may contain vital information
for the user. While it's probably not desirable to pause Web application
audio for system sound events, it's also not desirable to have system
sounds drowned out by Web application audio. User preferences may be
needed to indicate specifically how to handle the situation, but a way
for Web application audio to be aware of system sounds will be needed.
