Hi all,

Daniel and me had some discussion on our "requirements / use case"
document. Here are some thoughts about that document.

"Requirements / use case" documents in W3C are very heterogenous:

a) very short "requirements" documents like
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/CR-xquery-update-10-requirements-20080314/
they contain basically a list of requirements, without detailed
discussion, and with pointers to other documents which provide the
background
b) very long "requirements" documents like
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-widgets-reqs-20080625/
which contain rationale and background explanations. The MMSEM XG work
belongs into that category I think.

I hope that we will be able to write a document like a), and the Working
Group basically should go through a list of open issue (including the
outcome of the XG) and decide "do we need the use case or not, do we
need additional use cases / requirements?". I am happy to use the XG
results as a basis for this, see Erik's question at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-media-annotation/2008Sep/0025.html
"Couldn't we start just using all these documents from the late MMSEM XG
(as Tobias already started)?".

If we go for the a) approach, we can go through the XG results already
before and during the TPAC f2f, and publish a first draft of the
requirements document soon.
