I have to admit to being confused by the use of "nominal values" in the spec at the moment.

The term "nominal" is not defined anywhere, and it appears to be used for values that are completely free (GainNode), clamped (WaveShaperNode.curve) or not explicit (DynamicsCompressorNode).

Should we either:
* remove all mentions of "nominal" values and explicitly describe the limits and behaviour, or
* define "nominal" in the conformance section and use it exclusively for clamped values?
