No big issue with the rest of your proposals (besides the usual "who's
doing the work?" =p). However this one isn't a good idea, your web
browser plays tons of different things, alert sounds from web-apps,
videos (youtube and friends), audio from sites like pandora, game-sounds
from the various flash time-wasters. If this was classified as video, my
web-app giving me a new IM notification would cork my audio stream
(assuming your other proposals make it in)...
