This sounds like a reasonable plan. I have no strong feelings about any of the naming options, but I like the overall idea of getting this code into trunk now, using a feature define, and separating the Web-facing parts from the "platform" implementation parts.

The API has been through a good amount of review by WebKit developers at Apple, Google, and in the W3C Audio Incubator  group.  For those who are interested, the draft specification is here:

Most of the files are new, with only a few places which will touch existing WebKit files (such as EventTarget, Event).  The files will be conditionally compiled.  I'm considering using the following enable:

The reason I think 'audio' would be a good name is because the API does have a direct relationship to the audio element and, over time, when the API becomes more broadly used will be associated with the audio capabilities of the web platform.  That said, if anybody has grave concerns over this name, then we can discuss alternatives.
