Well, this is the use case that Jim, Milan, and probably others are 
actually interested in (myself included), so I believe you may be in the 
minority in your belief. The current proposal suggests that both this 
use case and the file-at-once use case have a lot in common, and we'd be 
foolish not to take advantage of that.

Encoding/decoding of audio belongs at the end-points of any processing 
graph, i.e., in MediaStreams, which are the domain of _this_ Task Force. 
To say nothing of the fact that a solution that only works for audio is 
pretty poor. But you can go venue shopping if you want. Let us know how 
that works out for you.
