We had this input from the SYMM WG on December, 2007: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2007Dec/0219.html

This linked to a detailed comparison, but there was apparently little  
interest in changing HTML5 <video> to be more like SMIL, since the  
message received no replies and there was no follow-up.
