While I usually am a champion for this point, given how little WebAudio content there is, I am not too worried here.

>> LayoutTests/webaudio/analyser-exception.html:34

I agree with Christophe, you should specify what exception you expect.  If the spec isn't specifying it clearly, we should get it updated.
