Hi Ingar
Thanks for your shared interest :) !
In the past (TV Control API CG) what we did is collecting use cases in a separate wiki section [1], to keep the spec clean. From that we had derived the "holes" in other specs to determine the scope of work to do [2] and [3]. I was at the origin of the project but had to leave it in the middle of the river for business reasons, but Francois, who also was part of it, can comment and add informations on this.

 Dear Jean-Charles
A warm welcome to the group for Voxtok and yourself ! 
You are quite right, music is inherently both multi-device (multiple instruments) and timing sensitive, so it is indeed a very important application domain. Furthermore, shared timing offers interoperability across application domains, so there should also be new opportunities where musical experiences could be extended with timed visual, interactive and social elements, in a distributed setting.
You are also right that we are currently a bit thin on this. This project was initiated through the Web and TV Interest Group, and for that reason we are a bit heavy on use cases related to video streaming and broadcasting. In any case, your suggested use cases would be most relevant and a welcome contribution.
Currently, we only have one music related use case in the timing object spec [1]. We have also had conversations with people from the Web Audio community, but that has not been documented as a use case yet.
Regarding how and where to develop new use cases, I'm not entirely sure which is the best way to go. We could keep adding use cases to the spec, or we could start collecting use cases on the group web pages or in a wiki?
How would you like to approach this Jean-Charles?
Francois, do you have a recommendation here?
Best regards,
Ingar Arntzen

Hi,
As this is my first message in the group, please allow me to introduce myself: I'm the CTO and co-founder of Voxtok, a french company developing an audio system device allowing highend audio and a unified music experience on every device, including a device-less version for TV and STB. We strongly (around 105%) rely on web technologies for this ;-) In the past I had the chance to represent a member of the W3C including in the advisory board and am well aware of how things work here (ahem)
I'd like to jump in into this fascinating proposal which is really in line with what we are willing to achieve in the most open possible way. 
I gave a quick look to the archives but couldn't find a discussion around adding a specific use case for music. If this has been done previously I sincerly apologize. Otherwise, I'd like to propose to contribute a new use case describing two scenario:
- locally, many device play the same music, synchronously (what the industry calls "party mode")- remotely, you "join" a party and are allowed to listen to the same music listened somewhere else, by someone else. This as a social impact such as : "This is what I'm listening to right now, care to listen?"
Before jumping to a more detailed proposal I'd like to get some feeback from the group,

Again, thanks for the awesome contribution!
Best regards, -- JC
Jean-Charles VerdiéCTO and co-founder, Voxtok
