After investigating the possibilities of a XUL application which does
audiomanipulation, I found out nsSound doesn't provide recording or volume
control of audio. Is such functionality planned?

Reproducible: Always
That's not something that a browser needs. Most of the functionality you in
Firefox/Mozilla has something to do with the functionality that a browser needs
to have in order to function properly.
Recording sound or volume control isn't really part of that.
So I think you'll need to add that functionality yourself in the extension.

I can't dispute the browser, therefor changing the product to Mozilla
Application Suite. Mozilla, in my eyes, became a framework for all different
platform independant applications. Why limit its functionality? (nsSound already
uses an abstraction layer for sound on gtk2 platform, ESD)

Creating an extension that implements complete audio functionality for a
specific platform seems the other way around if basic (but extendable) audio
functionality exists.

Personally I think this would be a useful addition for XULRunner, so possibly
this should be a Core or Toolkit enhancement.
Sound appears to be part of Core - Widget.

I vote for this feature since it'll be nice to record a short voice message and send it online in an web-based IM app.
