Dear all,

regarding my action item 155 I hereby present a list of open problems  
that we are currently facing with the Web IDL API descriptions:

1. readonly attribute object contributor getraises (NoValue);

The return type of the property contributor is currently defined as an  
object containing an identifier and role.
The question is: how would the contributor be identified? (referring  
to the discussions we had on the Phone Conference)

The same applies for following properties: creator,rating (to identify  
the responsible person for the rating), copyright (to identify the  
holder of the copyright), license (to identify the organization),  
publisher, targetAudience (to identify the issuer)

2. readonly attribute object createDate getraises (NoValue);

Currently there are no provisions for date types in Web IDL

3. readonly attribute object location getraises (NoValue);

How will we describe a location? (this is a similar problem as problem 1)

4. readonly attribute unsigned long duration getraises (NoValue);

how to denote a time interval (current suggestion is to use milliseconds)

5.   readonly attribute float bitrate getraises (NoValue);

how to denote bitrate (current suggestion is kbps)

All comments are welcome

Kind regards,
