           Summary: MIDIOutput.sendMessage doesn't need a timestamp
           Product: AudioWG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: MIDI API
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: cwilso@gmail.com
         QAContact: public-audio@w3.org

After reviewing carefully the use in practice, as well as historical usage from
the Windows MIDI APIs, I believe the sendMessage() "short message shortcut"
should not have a timestamp, in order to allow a variable length short message.
 (From status-byte-only to typical 3-byte messages.)

The Windows method doesn't have this, and the overhead of using
sendMIDIMessage(createMIDIMessage()) is actually not very large if you DO want
the timestamp.
