Re: [web-audio-api] Specify that audioprocess events should be dispatched to ScriptProcessorNodes when they're not connected to an output node (#203)

Note that ScriptProcessorNode allows having zero outputs. It makes sense to have a ScriptProcessorNode with one input and zero outputs, for example to do some kind of analysis on the audio without producing a signal. In this case the node can't be connected to an output, but obviously it should generate events. (Though currently this doesn't seem to work, at least in the stable version of Chrome.)

I'm not sure it would be wrong to generate events even if there are outputs which aren't connected, considering that the event handler may have side effects. But yes, the spec should specify this.
