No it refers only to bidirectional real-time audio streams carried over RTP/UDP or such connecting two or more users between them or to a network interactive voice response unit such as voicemail system. This is basically the soft phone in a browser use case. One of the specific issues arising out of this use case is the need to synchronise the input and output streams in order to perform echo cancellation economically. The use cases for listening to a remote live performance over the internet with an audio enabled web browser or DAW's are not excluded.

Could you clarify what is meant by this?  As noted in earlier email, I'm 
hoping the APIs will be suitable for things like DAWs, and the access of 
such programs to input audio seems like streaming to me.  I.e. the program 
(Web page) continuously monitors the input stream(s), choosing to record or 
process some or all of the data as appropriate.  Is this being ruled out? 
If so, I guess I'm disappointed.  Thank you.

Noah
