Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The attributes are floats, and the values expressed for, for
instance, duration, should be the duration. If that's 29.25497s, then that
would be the value returned. The only way the spec allows rounding is via the
"hardware limitations" clause, but beyond that I don't see anything that would
allow the browser to round off the value or anything... could you elaborate on
what text exactly you'd like to see in the spec to clarify this sufficiently?
