We are in fact in the process of starting that prioritization now, now
that we're closing in on the stabilization of user-requirements, which
should be completed by the end of today's call.

We've circled around the idea of a "director" track similar to the
Daisy/SMIL model and/or a ToC hypertext document that reflects the
time-line of the primary media asset, to coordinate both inter-asset
(structured/semantic) navigation as well as synchronizing timing markers.
We’ve not covered this in any detail to date, although there was some
brief discussion last week on our call.
