I have a need to direct all sound "from a webpage" to a particular device so it won't include sounds from the rest of the system if they occur. (So changing the default system output device won't solve that.)

If I don't need to build a customized WebKit, that's great. If I do, but it's a simple tweak (like modifying platform/mac/audio would have been), that miiight be doable enough that I can do so — assuming I can get Cocoa to use that WebKit and not the system's.
