thanks for your continuing the plugin is loaded and starts because of  
a pseudo-event in CSS.
the CSS is the prime mover, being pseudo-event. therefore as stated  
before the buck stops there.

the plugin is merely following the instruction of CSS, it could also  
stop the event but is not the primary cause.

unless you have something more helpful to add it's probably time to  
stop adding to this thread.

You cannot turn something off with a user style sheet if it was not  
on with a style sheet in the first place. If you want user control over
sound that was not turned on with aural CSS, then you need a user pref,
not a user style sheet.
