The AudioNode interface doesn't allow one to discover its set of connected input and output AudioNodes (e.g. through readonly computed Array attributes like connectedInputNodes, connectedOutputNodes). This often requires a developer to separately track connection state in a way that feels unnecessarily complicated and is also error-prone.

Also, the inability to determine the set of connected nodes feels at odds with other web APIs in which modifications to an object's state can usually be read back.
