I've also been going through a lot of the e-mail on the topic that has 
been sent to this list over the past few months. The work that has been 
done so far in Silvia's change proposals is the main source of information 
that I'm using in terms of what we need to provide. I hope to have a first 
draft of that integrated with the spec in the coming weeks.

As Silvia says, now would be a great time to bring up any real-world 
examples of use cases, to make sure that everything that people actually 
do with timed tracks get handled here.
