We had discussed this in January and you thought it would be good to "Letting
authors detect and opt into using configuration-specific mixing behavior"
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-audio/2013JanMar/0092.html

So that's why I proposed the current system where the default output is
2-channel (stereo), but can be configured by the authors to a larger number
of channels if the hardware supports it.
