I don't think the group has decided yet whether a low value in
question 3 is good or bad.
When I filled in the questionnaire, I regarded complexity as a bad thing.
Therefore, a low number in question 3 would mean (at least for some of
us) that it is less relevant to be examined.

We have multiple alternate ways forward from here:
1. have another survey to determine whether complexity in a format is
a preferrable
2. have another survey that does not ask 3 questions, but only one
about which format the group wants to work on - that can then include
iTunesRSS and whatever else was overseen the first time
3. run with the current result, accepting its shortcomings

In my personal opinion, I don't think we need to be afraid to
undertake this survey again. We have identified shortcomings of the
previous approach and should address them. We're not such a large
group that re-running the survey implies a major nuisance.

Just my 2c. :-)

Cheers,
Silvia.

The chairs of the group regret this and it was recorded at today's telecom that there is an interest in the group for those formats as well (see minutes to appear at: http://www.w3.org/2009/03/17-mediaann-minutes.html). These formats are included in the table for review:
