I pulled this from the page: Two issues:
  1. It does not explain how the boy is implied to be Ludwig van Beethoven. Which leads to the question whether it is really implied the boy is Beethoven.
  2. All There in the Manual is when important information about a work's universe is only given in supplementary material. Something that is actually implied in the movie is not All There in the Manual.

I don't know about the context, but Salieri was Beethoven's music teacher, there's no denying that; however, it could easily have been another of Salieri's pupils at that party.

What makes you think the boy is a pupil of Salieri?

Salieri had other pupils besides Beethoven, at least in real life.
