The Encrypted Media Extensions and Media Source Extensions proposals are the current topics requiring discussion, but there are may be other proposals in the future. As Kevin Streeter [1] and others have said, focused technical collaboration in this space is required to achieve the interoperability or consistency of experience that users want. In addition, the scope of work for the TF will go beyond encrypted media, so I believe that "Media Task Force" is an appropriate name.

Is name that can express its intended scope without incorrectly implying that all future HTML5 media work should be done there? It's not immediately clear to me what the common thread is between Encrypted Media and Media Source. Since these both come from the Web & TV Interest Group and seem related to issues for broadcast-quality content, how about "HTML WG Web & TV Task Force"?
