I agree that the Media Source & Encrypted Media proposals should not be
unnecessarily tied together. We have intentionally kept them separate
because we, at Google, believe that some constituencies interested in one
proposal may not want to participate in developing the other. We also
recognize that there are people interested in supporting both proposals and
ensuring that they properly interoperate with each other. We believe that
considering these proposals in the same forum would make it easier for the
two proposal development groups to coordinate interoperability efforts. In
no way are we saying that development of one proposal should be gated by
the other.
