Our thinking was that the postpone attribute should not apply to audio, as audio doesn't really have the concept of being visible. However, the use case you mentioned may make postpone attribute interesting to the audio tag, especially in the audio player scenario. I think we can update the spec to state that the postpone attribute will apply to an audio element if it has a control attribute specified.

Subject: [ResourcePriorities] postpone attribute on <audio>

There does not seem to be a postpone attribute supported for <audio>[1]. I've tried searching for a clear answer for it, but even on the archives, there doesn't seem to be much on it.

I certainly think there is a use case for this attribute on <audio>.
If the purpose of the spec is help download resources optimally, then IMO <audio> would benefit from this attribute too. At least, we could have support for this if the controls attribute is also mentioned along with it (thereby making it a visible resource)?
