Thanks, that is my POV :)
I think they fit in their own component as I said in my last email.

Then, due to the similarity of the design, and the goal, what about putting
these "more advanced interface for sound" in DAPI and call the library
dapi-sound? Sincerly, if you think about the needs, these interfaces are not
that advanced. Dealing with sound is probably a bit more complicated that
what people expect at the beginning. But still we can provide very simple
function like "Play". But such simple function will probably not be used for
long, because they are not really that useful...
