Thanks for sharing it. Looks quite nice, clear and complete.

I guess that's my main question. I understand that performance is a big win, but we are talking about a lot of operations which would be very easy to implement from the basic math features in JS and other scripting languages. Arguably the benefit would be even higher for vector math. But thenů would the scope be way broader than that of our Audio WG?
