After talking to some relevant co-workers about the proposal on the
table, I'd like to volunteer to write a counter proposal for this issue.

I agree with Silvia that a delay on this issue would be beneficial. I
think there is a clear need to be able to associate a transcript with a
media element in the HTML5 timeframe, but I have several concerns with
the approach taken in the existing proposal. Unfortunately, I don't
currently have a sufficiently defined proposal to make. I will work to
develop one over the next two weeks if the chairs will grant me an
extension.


Thank you,
Ted
