Hi folks !

I was asking myself some questions on the audio & video elements and  
searched a little bit in the huge mail flow.
I didn't find answers so I suppose theses questions haven't been  
discussed yet.

Here it is :

- Is there any DRM support planned ? (I'm not asking for all video/ 
audio to be signed, but I know a bunch of company who will prefer some  
proprietary technologies like Flash and his H.264 codec who support  
DRM than a semantic element which improve their Google rating)

- What about multi-tracks files ? (For instance a video with a French  
and English audio tracks and German and Japanese subtitles)

- In a search engine way of thinking, and still for these multi-tracks  
files, how could we parse an HTML document to get all the availables  
tracks (maybe a available-audio attribute ?)

- In a browser vendor way of thinking, load the prefered tracks for  
the user (after he selected his prefered listening/reading languages  
in his browser's prefs)

- What about the HD (and a low quality alternate link) ?

- Chapters could be a good idea (in association with the JS API, we  
could make some in-line links to skip to the correct chapter)

If these questions have already been discussed please feel free to put  
me on the right way :)

Have a nice day.

PS : Sorry for my lacky English.
