Agree. That is what you should do. However, in this case the device appears to be doing what you expect it to do. Thus, you are still using the device instead of a device that does not do that. That is a choice.

*nix does not do that. If it did would start a shell and command the machine to not do that.

None of that language articulates that the stream should stop because a laptop lid is closed  or a user put their "smart" phone in their pocket and continued performing activities knowing full well a button could be pressed while the device is in their pocket.

No, am not concerned about that case, nor the wiles of "smart" phone functionality. Am stating this specification should not be concerned with those matters either. Pick a device that does what you want it to do. As you apparently have. That does not mean just because you expect a stream to stop when the laptop lid is closed, or whatever device you happen to be used mutes a track for some reason, others expect the same output.
