For your interest here are the two main replies I got to my recent enquiry to the list. I asked if anyone is estimating the SALIENCE of perceptual groupings within the auditory scene, on the basis either of experimental data or of model outputs. No-one is doing exactly what I had in mind, but there is a lot of closely related work.
