Agree.  We won't tell people how to make their audio or video.  But we will
help create standards for how metadata is extracted from those files and
about how data governance decisions are communicated about how the files
are published.   Because when those files are published on an Open Data
Portal, they are data on the web.

I do listen to radio on the web, especially baseball games. There is tons
of data in a baseball game broadcast. But the fact that radio broadcasts
are available online doesn't make me feel that it is within our scope to
tell people how to make them.  I look at movies online, too, but I don't
think W3C will ever be writing standards for how to make good movies.

don't see sharing data over the radio as relevant to publishing data on the
web. It's a different medium and will have different needs, worth an entire
set of best practices of their own. The recordings could be made available
on the web, and it will make sense to apply best practices for data sharing
to them, but I don't think our best practices should be driven by this
particular use case any more than they are driven by publishing in PDF. It
may be the best way to publish in some locales, but it's certainly not the
best way to publish for reuse.
