Agreed. I can do the editing once we agree on what to modify for the
next publication.

I'm thinking of removing product names (GarageBand is cited, for
example), company names (EA is cited), and screenshots, basically
cleaning up the section 16, "Example Applications" [0]. In addition,
maybe we could remove the references to other software in section 11,
Spatialization and Panning [1].

I also feel that the changelog is not really useful (especially now that
we have the full history on GitHub), but this is somewhat a less
concerning issue.

Anything to add to/remove from this list of stuff to remove?
